Announcing a wiki-based encyclopedia of history

Docupedia will be a wiki-based encyclopedia of history designed to complement Wikipedia with expert historical scholarship.  Funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, it will be coordinated by the Zentrums für Zeithistorische Forschung Potsdam, and Humboldt-Universität Berlin's Institut für Geschichtswissenschaften and Computer- und Medienservice.

The project hasn't launched yet and apparently has no home page.  But today it launched a blog, and the first entry announces the project.  Read the announcement in German or Google's English.
