File Format Conversion Wiki
The Long Now Foundation is building a wiki for file format conversions. This will be a central repository and discussion space for file format conversion to aid in knowledge transfer. So far the only thing I have seen is the announcment on Omidyar.net, but it sounds like they are going to put some actual money into it.
It may turn out to be a direct competitor, but it looks like they want to focus on cataloging other resources, rather than writing/hosting the actual resources. Regardless, this is something I want to be involved with.
Found via this BoingBoing post on Tibetan monks using computers to preserve books.
