You caught me here. The wiredwings wiki was never meant to be anything
but temporary. I'm setting up a proper wiki right now. I'll let you know
when it's done so you can help migrate the information from the old wiki.
You're right, I need to move it someplace else for HTTPS. Does anyone
run a well connected server, ideally where we can serve the website as
hidden service as well? A VPS would be good because for the planned
multilanguage features I need to be able torestart the webserver from
time to time (gettext caching...).

Very true! The main reason for Torservers is that stuff like this is
heavily underdocumented. I can definitely use some help. We need a bug
tracker, too. :-) I was hesitant to put my ISP research into the
temporary wiki. I have tried to update Torproject's GoodBadISPs log too.
The thing is that many ISPs will probably be good enough to host a small
Tor exit. If you use the limited exit policy on a low traffic node (and
by low I mean less than 5TB a month) it might work quite well even when
you receive some complaints from time to time. Most ISPs stop "working"
at >15TB, and I try to nail them down quite a bit.
