It's a great idea, but wiki's are prone to problems with people who just 
want to screw up other's lives. I think it unfortunate that you would 
have to require registration to an open-source project (I'm speaking 
about linux audio that is, not your website.) But, I think you'd have to 
resort to this.
But, since you are asking for volunteers, it seems a natural that you 
could control the few who would edit. Thus, you would be using the 
editing-ease of using a wiki, and controlling spam to some extent by 
allowing only a few registered users.
