In January 2011, the authors agreed to move from a document-based SEBoK to a wiki-based SEBoK, and beginning with v. 0.5, the SEBoK has been available at www.sebokwiki.org Making the transition to a wiki provided three benefits:
- easy worldwide access to the SEBoK;
- more methods for search and navigation; and
- a forum for community feedback alongside content that remains stable between versions.
For additional information, see the article on Acknowledgements and Release History.
The wiki team is responsible for maintenance of the wiki infrastructure as well as technical review of all materials prior to publication.

The wiki is currently supported by Ike Hecht from WikiWorks.
