So by the time they will introduce such "Group Wiki" feature, you can start searching for a system which will be better suit for you needs, or find someone who will build you a custom site, or build it on you own. You won't be limited at all.

I don't understand what the main problem is that you're trying to solve.

Mods unavailable when the hosting site goes down? The only way to improve this is if you act as a mirror, but if you mirror mods that aren't on GitHub, you would have to update your mirror manually every time they change.  This leads to extra work and out-of-date versions, which modders don't like and probably won't give you permission to do. For mods that are on GitHub, there's little advantage to having a mirror since GitHub is fairly reliable.

 

One single place that links to every mod? BWS does this and it offers much more functionality.

Not knowing when mods receive updates? We already have something like that, though it is not universally used (see our modding news forum and RSS feed here).
