Actually, I meant wiki according to its classic, collaborative meaning:
What you folks are describing is a web page, not really a wiki.
The problem with designing this for use by a host is when we have no host. It
also makes the host the gatekeeper of information. As we've seen quite often,
good information comes from all over the community. We should take advantage of
that by allowing anyone to add the information.
Access to IETF wikis already requires a login. I would expect a Venue
Information Exchange Wiki (VIEW...) to be subject to the same requirement.
The template described in the I-D, gives excellent structure to the wiki.
I believe it would not be not an onerous burden on the Secretariat to establish
a new wiki, according to the standardized template, for each meeting. After
that, whoever has knowledge for that meeting can populate the database.
