I think Microsoft GitHub can do that.
It has in-browser editing, live preview of the rendered markdown/etc
format, as well as pull requests, forking, comments on changes,
permissions, the ability for people to use command line git at home.
I don't know what it's like to write lots of docs like that, or if it's
still too programming focused, and it's a shame that it's proprietary
software from Microsoft, but it might get the job done.
