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.

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 expect that to be
- easy to implement
- providing a good mix of openness and quality control

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?
