Folks who've worked on wikis - please share your experiences around publishing product documentation as a wiki.

> There certainly are benefits, but what are the risks of using a wiki? For example, do the publicly visible comments impact customer satisfaction?
> How do you manage user feedback? What aspects should a feedback management plan cover?
> Who provides the support? Tech Support? Tech Writers? Programmers?
> What kind and volume of feedback do you receive? Are you able to address every comment on every page across releases?
> What happens to all the comments when the wiki/product moves to the next release? Should there be a point at which the comments can be archived?
> Is your wiki completely public? Limited access for customers?
> What space do you use to publish your wiki?

In your response, please add a line about your product domain and the approximate number of pages that your wiki has. Any stories around Atlassian's Confluence would especially help.

Thanks very much!
