Our tools are in the projects/wikiserver GIT repo, but we need to write
up instructions.  SJ's mentioned having an intern or two working on
reproducing and documenting this.  I think it'll be much easier for
English; unlike Spanish, they have the Simple English wiki and a
"Core Articles" list, as well as fairly well-maintained categories.
