We created an install profile with Drupal that could be of use here.
It's a combination news aggregator and publishing platform that can
be used to collect and remix content.
One of the key features that could be helpful is the ability to
create "Issues" - so, we could create a web tools issue, a desktop
tools issue, a server admin tools issue, an "open source meets
social learning best practice" issue, etc.
Our install profile is, of course, free to acquire, use, install,
and modify, and is built completely from open source components :)

If Schoolforge members have

can be very helpful.
It is ironic that you referenced the Free Software for
Schools publication because I was just talking with Donna
Benjamin (co-creator) about taking it down because it is so out
of date - it could desperately use the kind of project help
being discussed in this thread.
On a positive note, we also discussed creating a Kickstarter
project to automate the maintenance and PDF publication of this
information. Perhaps advertising such an effort could be part
of Schoolforge's new information mission.
All the best,
