One plan would be to freeze hawiki, and create a new MediaWiki-based 
wiki on haskell.org that used the BSD3 license (since it seems to be the 
standard one for Haskell libraries). People could then carefully copy 
across their contributions...

I am willing to help out with MediaWiki if it is decided to go that 
route. Prerequisites for MediaWiki are PHP and MySQL.
