I'm going to write a top level post at some point (hopefully soon) but in the meantime I'd like to suggest the content in the original post and comments be combined into a wiki. There's a lot of information here about LW 2.0 which I wasn't previously aware of and significantly boosted my confidence in the project.

A wiki feels too high of a barrier to entry to me, though maybe there are some cool new wiki softwares that are better than what I remember.

For now I feel like having an about page on LessWrong that has links to all the posts, and tries to summarize the state of discussion and information is the better choice, until we reach the stage where LW gets a lot more open-source engagement and is being owned more by a large community again.

Seconding SaidAchmiz on pmwiki, it's what we use for our research project on effective online organizing and it works wonders. It's also how I plan to host and edit the 2017 survey results.

As far as the high barrier to entry goes, I'll repeat here my previous offer to set up a high quality instance of pmwiki and populate it with a reasonable set of initial content - for free. I believe this is sufficiently important that if the issue is you just don't have the capacity to get things started I'm fully willing to help on that front.
