Re: Wiki Migration



If we do decide to move to a CMS, I would like to suggest that we go with Enano CMS. The conversion utilities could probably be adapted from the mediawiki version to Enano because Enano shares syntax with MediaWiki. Enano's own model of security is much more advanced from other systems, and is less likely to get hacked to bits. Enano provides fine-grained ACLS, and a better model for managing categories than Moin. It also recently started using a new search algorithm that is much faster than the original one. The searching also seems to be faster in Enano than in Moin. http://enanocms.org is the main website.

The X guys are looking at moving from Moin to MediaWiki. There's a
post about some conversion tools here =>

Looks like to tools need a bit of work but as they say many hands make
light work so maybe some coders could help out that tool and save a
whole lot of pain for a number of people.
