I could file a ticket to have SAC create a new Trac instance (such as https://trac.osgeo.org/libtiff), and I could create the opening wiki page, like the existing html page. Would this be helpful? I can also add the other html pages as raw html, through a wiki parameter I believe. Or, maybe I should just go ahead with this and report back here?

Then anyone can edit the pages (any champion), and it has a long-term home.

Currently the pages are edited and managed via the CVS repository and they are part of every libtiff release.

It is easy to post the current libtiff html files anywhere (as I just did at http://www.simplesystems.org/libtiff/). The main issue is that users are confused about which ones are actively maintained.

I feared that libtiff bugzilla had been lost but thankfully I see that bugzilla is hosted at a different site. It seems that all that has been lost is a URL used since perhaps 2003.

Yes easy to post anywhere, but the problem with a single person hosting them is, well, what happened. So I am proposing using the OSGeo infrastructure, so that anyone with an OSGeo ID (or that person can create one if needed) can maintain the website by pressing the "edit" button on the Trac page.

Anyway, it sounds like you want to host them yourself, no problem with me.
