Yes, I think it should be. I'm not a DNS guru, but as far as I know you
should be able to set an A or CNAME record for any subdomain.

Re: wikis - Github has the advantage that it means most of our user
interaction is on one system, so we're not needlessly giving people another
username and password. That said, you're right that Github is really a
developer site.

Some of the content could be moved onto the website proper. But, I think we
have some stuff - especially the 'cookbook', which people outside the core
team should be able to update easily (without branching and sending a pull
request). What's the best way to do this? We could almost put the recipes in
something like gist, but with the idea of a collection.
