My vote on MediaWiki, too. (I do like DokuWiki better for personal things but mediaWiki seems the best choice for a project this large.) Btw was it Fedora having moved from MoinMoin to MediaWiki? I remember something like that, could be erring though. >> Here's another idea: >> The German Wikipedia uses a concept called "sighted revisions".

I'm not sure if that a thing to go for. Drawbacks: - More work (whereas we could use more manpower already) - New bottlenecks Couldn't we just make two big "namespaces" 'devs' -- Developers only 'registered' -- Full edit access to any registered user in the same wiki and have pages be in either namespace, reflecting the namespace in the page name or path somehow?

I think you should clearly state again that this is not gonna replace GuideXML, just migrate a few use cases where a wiki fits better. This is what you aim for, right? Sebastian
