A couple of us got together and we decided to set up a DokuWiki here: http://sharnoth.com/psodevwiki/
. It's hosted by ToasterMage, thank you Jake!

Speaking of wikis, we used to have one on SourceForge, but it seems to be gone now.
You mean https://sylverant.net/wiki/
? That has nothing to do with SourceForge, and everything to do with the fact that I forgot to restore that database when I moved the server. I'll add that to the ever growing list of things to do when I have free time.
The only stuff on the actual SourceForge wiki was the stuff that was on the Google Code one (the list of commands in Sylverant, for instance).
EDIT: It's back up. Turns out I did already do the db stuff, and all I had to do was install some php extensions to make it work again.
This is a great resource, thanks for making it public! We actually talked about it but decided to create a server-neutral wiki to be able to share information across the entire community without bias. We also couldn't add to it without contacting you and there seems to be no easy way to copy/backup/archive your wiki. We want to make sure there's a dev wiki that can be easily backed up and restored in another location when the current host loses interest or decides to remove it for some reason. We're planning on making these backups available via e.g. a public git repository.
Would you mind if we copied over any information on the Sylverant wiki that we're missing to this new one? And would you consider joining us there or help figure out how we can make a wiki for everyone? Nothing's set in stone and any input is greatly appreciated.
Edit: And also thank you so much for the Sylverant code base. It's written very clearly and has thought me a lot about PSO's technical side.
