Along similar lines, here's a project I've been thinking about that
someone might like to try...

It's a cross between darcs and a wiki. You want to let users contribute
minor fixes to code or documentation. It's especially relevant for
trivial changes to documentation. But instead of making the change live,
it makes a darcs patch and sends it to the package maintainer.

The point is it should be as easy as a wiki to make some minor
improvement, but it does not mean your actual source code lives in a
wiki, the maintainer still has control and gets patches via their normal
source control system.
