I’d be in favor of having a wiki (preferably with the old content restored), even though I haven’t really missed the existing one all that much. I’d be happy to co-administrate it. I do have trouble spending the time I’d like on my existing projects already, so I don’t know exactly how much time I’d be able to spend on it; so the co would be a requirement for me.

But it sounds (to me) that setting up — for example — a GitHub account with a wiki and issues (for ZEPs) shouldn’t be too big a burden.
Restoring the existing content, OTOH, would take some time, but IMO that’s something that can be done in tiny chunks at a time. (It’s usually the stuff that requires longer consecutive stretches of time that’s problematic for me).
