What about SGML/DocBook? The Linux Documentation Project has tons of
user-contributed documentation written by individuals of varying levels
of technical skill, and they seem to be doing fine with DocBook, and
without a fancy CMS system.

Linus never used CVS for the kernel. But since his requirements for a
version control system are far in excess of whatever techdocs would
need, I don't really see how it's relevant.
I understand the need to settle on the right technology, but before we
get ahead of ourselves, perhaps we can just pick something and be done
Just my 2 cents...
