Can't https://discuss.linuxcontainers.org be used for most of that?

It's self-moderated (to an extent), already has a number of howtos,
posts can be tagged and turned into wikis as needed (not a full wiki but
it means anyone with a particular trust-level can edit/contribute).

Ultimately what most people follow for documentation is the website, but
we already do maintain a pretty length list of links there and certainly
wouldn't have any problem linking to more sources (which you can do
today by forking the website on Github and sending a pull request).
