I don't see any reason to wait for the server - machine availability 
means this is going to take a little while (maybe a few weeks).  But the 
wiki is there for team coordination - making lists, team org, 
commenting, etc - the wiki is perfect for all of that.  There's no need 
to wait. The new server will help fill the functional gap for 
preview/upload/download capability like art.gnome.org.

I suggest the team look at links like


as examples of how an Ubuntu community team have organised themselves 
effectively on the wiki.  And then

as an example of what the external server can be used for - in this case 
to display/preview documentation in a way that the wiki doesn't work 
for.  (The doc team has just started using this external server, so it 
will look nicer in time.)  It will also be renamed to doc.ubuntu.com, 
just as we will have the new server at art.ubuntu.com. 

Thos doc team organisational plans, project tracking pages, etc. took a 
while to get into shape, but are now very effective and the wiki works 
well.  I think a lot of coordination work, and art work, can be done now 
which will better inform software choices on the server when it arrives.
