I'm sorry, you are wrong. If other ppl know, we (germans) are ordering 
elephants, they can jump on the train and we can make just one order for 
several groups.

Just to stay with your example.

Why not asking all in the EU, if some more ppl can attend and make the 
booth/event more successfully?

Just to stay with your example.

Susanne: we don't need the wiki for the "presentation"! That's where we
can use a CMS like drupal. We want a wiki to document events, decisions,
changes, so that work is not repeated several times and all information 
are public available.

The board already decided to use a wiki so the question is no longer, if
we use a wiki or not. The only remaining questions are which software
and where to host. So let's close this topic right now, thank you.
