Seems nice; instead of a subpage, it could also just be put under the 'Reoccurring Meetings' section of the main page, and also include a link to the minutes posted to the list, to act as a summery of the meetings for visitors to the wiki page.

Also instead of another subpage, maybe this could be a subsection of the 'Goals and Visions' notes on the http://daviswiki.org/Davis_Community_Workshop/Goals_and_Projects page?  Just to keep the space name and ideas for the space together.

Interesting.  It might be noisy if it gets too unrelated to the space itself.  Though if part of the goal here would be to find equipment to be donated to the eventual space itself, it could be quite useful to bring up here.
