BookSprints (en)
This book describes how to carry out collaborative authoring in a short time with the express goal of having a publishable book at the end. The Book Sprint concept was devised by Tomas Krag. Tomas conceived of book production as a collaborative activity involving substantial donations of volunteer time.

Tomas pioneered the development of the Book Sprint as a 3-4 month production cycle, while Adam Hyde, founder of FLOSS Manuals, was keen to continue with the idea of an "extreme book sprint," which compressed the authoring and production of a print-ready book into a week-long process.

During the first year of the Book Sprint concept, Adam and FLOSS Manuals experimented with several models of sprint. This manual represents the ongoing lessons learned during those events, and will be continually updated.

It doesn't say 'wiki' anywhere, but I *think* this is a platform like FLOSS Manuals.
