I was thinking about this before. Using the wiki format in a company would be great. Especially if the team is diversed geographicaly are have people working from home.

It is cheap, easily maintainable and easy to update. May be you can create enough documentation finally by this way.

I have used wiki for my COMP8100 assignments and it worked realy well. I strongly suggest to use wiki in your company for the sake of making the documentation easier for developers. No more "what was the link of that word doco explaining functional specifications" kind of words will be spoken and there will be no excuses to lost the documents.

Most of the Open Source projects are doing it so why not companies and government agencies?

Hi Volkan,
There is a search engine in Flex Wiki. My installation is based on files becaue it is an old version of FlexWiki. New version is coming up with SQL Server option. May be there will be a full-text search as well. But as long as the installation is on hosted servers, full-text search may not be possible.

Hi Gurkan!
This makes a really good use-case-scenario for twiki'fying' documentation process.
And of course, the 8100 docs are really informative for students (all the comments within the text help a lot!)

Thanks for the effort!

Cheers,
csrins.
