[ros-users] Documenting third-party stacks/packages on the ROS wiki?

Hi all,

I believe I've seen a note about this on the wiki or the mailing list,
but now I can't seem to find it...

What's the procedure for documenting third-party stacks/packages?

I've just released a new stack "dfki_sscs_laser_drivers" containing 
one package "rod4_node". Now, I'd like to put the documentation up at 
ros.org/wiki/dfki_sscs_laser_drivers and ros.org/wiki/rod4_node
respectively. If I use the PackageTemplate to create rod4_node
I get an error message presumably because the wiki attempts to
auto-generate parts of the page from, e.g., the manifest.xml 
of a package it doesn't know about.

I suppose new stacks/packages need to be registered such that this sort
of wiki magic works. Is a fully-blown repository required? What version
control systems are supported? SVN? Git?

Thanks in advance for any pointers!
