First of all, this site is not only for and by developers. This is for the Debian 

The usual problem with this kind of news site is not the technology you use,
with almost any technologies you can even make a pretty cool website. The problem 
is *time*: having people involved who put time on it to gather news and having
people who spend 2 minutes in submitting stuff.

That said, could you explain why using ikiwiki and a public git repo is going to make
the website better, with more contributions?
