We had a short call about this a few minutes ago (notes at
http://okfnpad.org/open-methods ).

Basically the request would be for:
      * http://methods.okfn.org/ subdomain for the time being (other
        domain names already taken)
      * installation of Semantic MediaWiki - I can take care of it
        myself, if given the right credentials and instructions on which
        server should be used (SMW is a MW extension, so PHP).
        PostgreSQL is almost untested as db backend of SMW
        unfortunately, so MySQL would be better.

Any question is welcome! Open Methods aims at establishing a common (and
possibly multilingual) repository of methods and workflows in any field
of knowledge.

Thank you
