There is also ongoing work for Sugar Network initiative [1][2][3].
This initiative is not only about hosting artefacts, but about also
about full cycle of collaborative work, i.e., bunch of feedback features
(Questions/Ideas/Problems/Reviews), various content sharing (for now
only .xol but it should support Wiki natively (not only HTTP pages like
Wiki activity), collect fail reports, share activities itself.
The original purpose was about supporting offline schools (with
possibility to connect offline and online people via sneakernet),
but all mentioned features should be useful for online community
