Release Notes entry for the moin package



Hi Docs people,

I recently took over as the moin package maintainer and I've updated it
to 1.8.2 in F11, which is quite a bump from 1.6.3 in F-10 and it might
need an entry in the Release Notes.

Here's a list of things that might be worth mentioning, could someone
from the Docs team help make this a real release note? :)

- Lots of changes, users should start by going 
  through /usr/share/doc/moin-1.8.*/CHANGES

- Upstream documentation on how to update is 
  in /usr/share/doc/moin-1.8.*/UPDATE.html

- Instructions on how to migrate the data directory are 
  in /usr/share/doc/moin-1.8.*/README.migration - this file talks about 
  using the www-data user for running the migration, in Fedora there is 
  no such user, probably the best option is to run the script as root 
  and then do a chown -R apache:apache for the data directory 
  afterwards.

- The documentation on how to set up moin in Fedora is updated, it's 
  at /usr/share/doc/moin-1.8.*/README-rpm

- Users should make sure they update the configuration files, such as 
  wikiconfig.py, the 'server driver', such as moin.cgi, the underlay 
  directory and possibly the htdocs directory for their wiki instance.
