Will ipython.scipy.org/moin/ still exist, or do we need to move some stuff
to a Github wiki quickly? At present, the cookbook, 'developer zone' and
list of projects that use IPython are still based on the moin wiki.

I'd go with roughly what other people are talking about: files to download
(like the releases) go in the Github downloads area, and other things can be
served straight from the website, as the PDF docs already are. Not quite as
convenient at the command line, perhaps, but I think it's workable.
