Yes, we have a _lot_ of process and some tools invested in Moin.  I can
almost guarantee that we are going to have a running Moin instance for a
long time.  We might still want a different Wiki engine for our
community documentation location.  That would be what is covered in
ticket #31, IMO.

For example, Ville-Pekka is working upstream and in our project to
enable man and info page editing via Moin; a sane diff is produced that
can be sent upstream as a patch:


Moin supports conversion to DocBook XML, and last Summer's GSoC project
many get cleaned up this year for inclusion in the next version.  We use
this for e.g. writing guides at Docs/Drafts/ and release notes at
Docs/Beats/, then convert to XML in CVS:


So, at the minimum, we'd have a Documentation Wiki using Moin.  Any
improvements we can make there will definitely help the most prolific
Wiki users.
