FYI The default wiki on bitbucket is limited. The permissions are either
Public (world writeable, world readbale think 0666) or Private (project
members only, 0660). However, if its private, non-project members cannot
even see it. I had this issue with using it and created a secondary site.
Recently, Bitbucket supports Markdown in their README files and you can use
that as a read only source of public information. Github doesn't seem to
have this limitation. I am not sure that if you pay for bitbucket, if one
gets different wiki permissions or capabilities.
