Ironically I believe Paul and Jacinta were maintaining it :-) but yes
it is too much work without a wiki.
A radical suggestion - Can we possibly run melbourne.pm.org on the

Yes. Melbourne.pm.org should be separate from perl.net.au - but it
may be able to share. So when I say separate I think the URL should
be separate and have its own wiki, but maybe we can still work on it
