What would you like to see in a paleo wiki?

A friend of mine and I are working to create a paleo wiki-- we want it to be clear, easy to read, and well-referenced.

What would you like to see in a paleo wiki? What types of paleo info would be helpful to have documented in a wiki format? How should it be structured? How should it handle controversial topics?

I've got a wiki going @ http://flare8.net/health . It is a work in progress and contributions are welcome. Info is still being added (as opposed to just refactored). Warning: it is not strictly a 'paleo' wiki; it is a wiki about health, informed partially by the paleo/evolutionary health concept, and by the many writings of those near the 'paleo sphere'.

Oh, I see, Kamal didn't put up the link because it was his question. Here we go: http://paleohacks.com/questions/11910/is-there-a-paleo-wiki

With great power comes great responsibility. A paleo wiki should perhaps include a large number of people and a highly structured format in order to convey accurate information. There is another thread with the wiki tag that has paleohackers opinions on this subject.

Have pages for foods listing their nutritional profiles/ benefits or why they should be avoided, along with recipes and articles.

Most of the stuff discussed here could be wiki-ized. For example, an entry about "dairy" could include health benefits of eating it, potential risks, current opinion of paleosphere, etc.

How should it handle controversial topics?

Different views on the topic should be included. Basically, you can handle it the same way as Wikipedia does it.

You could probably go through the tags here on PaleoHacks to see what kind of topics would be helpful. You really should research other wiki's to maybe get an idea of how you should structure yours.
