I think this is a fantastic use case for the WikiText tools,
especially if the tools supported remote publishing as well as
local capture, providing a full round-trip with possibility for
version control, etc.. That sounds like it should be easy, but
its really not as you can't just FTP the WikiText to the remote.
The lack of a round-trip is a real barrier to having a really
good workflow for crowd sourced documentation.

long-time back on one of your blog posts or something..)

Davide, if you'd like to discuss further this is
something that we could take up in the weekly Mylyn call.
Let me know if you're interested.

The editing features of
Mylyn WikiText are designed
for editing local files,
however Mylyn WikiText
provides API to make it easy
to embed a wiki markup
source editor in other
applications. It would be
relatively easy to create an
application that uses a
wiki's remote API to edit
pages using Mylyn WikiText.
A good place to start is
Developer Guide, org.eclipse.mylyn.wikitext.ui.editor.MarkupSourceViewer and org.eclipse.mylyn.wikitext.ui.editor.WikiTextSourceEditor.
