I have some experience with php, having been on the WordPress
(http://wordpress.org) team for more than a couple of years. Since
february this year, the Ph.D. took priority over WordPress
development. I still maintain 20+ websites (mostly of friends, the
local LUG etc). I would love to help Ubuntu-in with setting up and
designing a website.

In my opinion, a wiki is a poor replacement for a website. A website
may have a wiki as a part of it, but I suppose it is better for a
website to have more to it than just the wiki. As far as wikis are
concerned, I tend to think that PmWiki (opensource, php, no db) leads
the pack in ease of use, amount of control available, ease of setup
etc. I use it on my personal site. Just a thought, at a tangent,
perhaps :)

I voted for Mediawiki, by the way ;)
