This sounds great. Basically a wiki page for each project leader where 
work can be directly edited, and when the project leader is happy, the 
document is frozen and approved as an official document and then stored 
on a web/ftp server as official resources.
This sounds like a very good plan, a mixture of wiki style and structured.
I will update the webpage soon, to reflect this idea.

I like it
