[BangPypers] Idea

Not a bad idea, but a fundamental problem with Job wiki is that job
information is transient. It does not hold good forever. Public wikis
are more suited to information which is constant and does not
change or age (time out). Which is why Wikis are successful in
storing and sharing knowledge (wikipedia!). They can be used
for storing and sharing transient information also, but with appropriate
safeguards. For example, in this case a time-stamp of  the job
posting should be mandatory. The good thing about a mailing list
is that an email provides the timestamp automatically (same for
a blog post), but that is not the case for most wikis, unless you
try and look up the metadata regarding the edits.
