Welcome, Peter! Those all sound like excellent ideas and I'm looking forward to these changes.

I'm unfamiliar with Wiki projects out there, but we need one with a captcha feature or some other anti-spamming mechanism, otherwise it is a major pain with constant spam takeover.

I'm very excited about this feature. We should allow people to upload model files (LDraw or Lego's), photograph steps to build robots, and to include optional links to Youtube (there are already many leJOS robots on Youtube).

Sounds good to me.
I suggest using the Sourceforge managed phpBB rather than managing it ourselves because it solves the email server problem we currently face. That can be set up right from the Sourceforge project management page. Migrating the current phpBB database over is pretty easy with the back-end tools.
