Count me in favor of both a wiki and a Trac database where changes are not 
limited to the small pool of "editors" or "experts", but widely available. 
On some wikis, it can be configured such that any change instantly 
triggers an email detailing the change to those who wish to receive such 
notices; I would see that well within the charter of the "editors", who 
would pounce as soon as someone's placed something there that shouldn't be 
there.  Requiring registration will stop some spam; if not enough, we can 
move to a model where registrations must be approved by the editors, but 
such approvals happen quickly.  There might be some other fine-tuning 
possible - it would be reasonable to configure Trac to not allow issues to 
be closed except by a smaller group of "experts" and "editors", for
