Here is my two cents for Moin vs MediaWiki.
I don't mind migration to MediaWiki since I'm alread familar with it.
However, MediaWiki requires MySQL database so it's a bit complex than Moin.
I'm currently in the process of migration fedoranews.org to new server and
encounting some issues with exporting and importing database.
Anyway, that's my two cents. :)
