Version 2.0, which we will demo tomorrow night uses a Docs plugin for BuddyPress Groups written by Boone Gorges. Each Working Group can thus have their own collection of Wiki-like Docs in an interface that is seamless with the WordPress Platform. An "Activity Stream" (like the Facebook Wall) will show any thing that has happenned across all of the Groups in a real time stream.
