But.... there is always but..., look for comments in-line

Thats a good idea, any suggestions what wiki to use?

Definitely agree. 
I could suggest Jive Software forums. It is commercial but maybe they would
offer a free license for JSF. If so I could offer my help in setting this up.
Any others suggestions are also welcome of course.

I disagree. I think we should be open to the whole Jabber community
not just English speakers. And tbh I don't think it is particularly difficult
to maintain multilanguage site or forum.
