Is there an R wiki?

Looking at the huge amount of traffic on this list, I think wiki could be
an exelet outlet for all the constructive enthusiasm here.

I don't think it would be too hard to port the existing R documentation
(the stuff you get with the ?) onto a wiki system, then users could add
their own examples and comments. 

Having distinct web page style organization would be easier to navigate
than the mailing list archives. I like the online version of the R-docs,
but I miss 'user comments' and I miss being able to fix trivial things.

The user contributed links could supply the best statistical online
resources to supplement the R-documentation, with links to the relevant
FAQ's and Tutorials supplementing the whole thing.

Now I have said it this sounds too good to not exist already... Anyone
dumped the R-documentation onto a wiki system?

Given the capability of R to be integrated into web pages, this could be
really really great.
