Would it be ideal to have a system that perhaps intereacts with CVS?  
Meaning, developers would use a web gui to write and doc, but they would 
publish to cvs. The moderator would then determine if its ready for 
primetime, and then execute some foo (from the gui) that publishes it to the 
main system, probably a few tables.  Only the brances from cvs ready to 
publish would actually make it to the DB.

I could see a cpanish like system - for example, we could have the section 
on banking or financials, with postgres' awesome support of network types, 
we could have a networking section etc......

Josh, do you have a dev server all setup with php, postgres, ssh?   For dev 
puprposes, perhaps we should run cvs on the same maching until we work out 
all the kinks.  (assuming my idea of coordination is not entirely insane).

I could probably help hack something like this together.
