This should happen (if at all) on a per article basis imho. Having the
option to do so (if we want to) is a plus we should consider, though.

Mediawiki sounds like what we want probably, mainly because it seems to
be the most popular one.

Besides that:
- Ubuntu and Debian are using MoinMoin
- Fedora and OpenSUSE use Mediawiki

It's not that I'm able to invest really much time for this, but if it's
needed to get this finally rolling - count me in. Plus it shouldn't be
much of an issue, if editing is limited to registered users (at least
when speaking of Spam).

Fully ack.

In addition I'd like to establish a Wiki team with both developers and
experienced users who are able to review Wikipages (specifically every
revision of a page) and tag those pages as reviewed. Something not that
difficult, but that'll allow for some QA. See for reference.
