But I suggest change to [http://wikipedia.sourceforge.net MediaWiki]. With MediaWiki we can manage more easily categories, pages in different languages (the interwiki links) and so on. == Current wiki engine ==

 * I have never used MediaWiki, and so it's hard for me to say one way or another. If/when the wiki becomes official, and is on Debian hardware, it might be time for a discussion about wiki software from whoever will be maintaining it, but for now, Kwiki it is. === The current configuration ===

== Features ==
Here's an incomplete list of features __currently__ in use on this wiki :
 * revision control,
  * Diff between pages.
 * RSS syndication,
 * email notification,
 * Antispam
 * multiple categories,
 * code beautification plugins (highlighting)
 * "Include" Macro
 * Possibility to update a page with a batch [[TopicDebianDevel]]
 * Attachments
  * Upload attachments
  * No revision (Yes, this is a feature: it limit administration burden, against file spamming)
  * Disaply attachment inline
 * Export doc !DocBook format (to generate PDF, etc..)
 * Unicode/I18n
 * Built-in search Engine
 * Public search engine support :
  * Control what is indexed.
  * Provide a "recent changes feed" so google index new pages properly.
  * User pages are "no-index,no-follow" by default, so spamming incentive is low.
 * Possibility to easily generate a table from a shell script
 * Full history of pages contributions/contributors, which is required for license/copyright.
  * When switching to a new wiki, the migration script should migrate the contributors accounts, at least the names and email addresses.

Wishlist:
 * possibility to edit "page section".
 * Better internationalization support (esp. translation: track revision, notify translator, etc...).
 * Synchronise/merge a page of another wiki (Debian derivatives)
 * Preview diff, before saving the page.
 * Authentication: allow signing with DD and alioth credential (!OpenId...)
 * Separate namespace for users homepages
 * Export of wiki contents, allowing for [[DebianWiki/Browsing#offline|offline browsing]]

See: ([[http://www.webhostingart.com/blog/wiki-systems-for-joomla.html]])

 * Available now: Joomla with WikiBot

Reason: OpenWiki provides a bridge to encapsulate the PHP application DokuWiki within the Joomla system. It features a complete ACL implementation that builds on the Joomla ACL for groups such as Super Administrator, Administrator, Manager, Author, Registered, and Public. ACL permissions include create, edit, read, upload, and delete.

=== 040216: TWiki for wiki.debian.net ===
HereOn 2004-02-16: ["TWiki"], http://www.twiki.org/ , was discussed at SVLUG, http://svlug.org/meetings.shtml , on January 7th, 2004. From what little I know & have done with wikis (a couple pages on wiki.debian.net, and updates to ["DebianKDE"]), twiki seems to be a much more powerful system than the sw for wiki.debian.net . I'm wondering if anyone (such as perhaps MichaelIvey DebianWikiMaster) knows enough about wikis in general to think that it would be a substantial improvement to upgrade wiki.debian.net to twiki. Thoughts, anyone?

 * I dislike ["TWiki"] a lot. It's way too complex. I'm pretty happy with Kwiki. -- MichaelIvey

 * MediaWiki is a great wiki software package, (used by wikipedia - http://en.wikipedia.org) Here are some advantages that I can think of off the top of my head
   * Ability to edit individual headings
   * Ability to link directly to headings
   * Interface to upload files (pictures, screenshots, etc)
   * Watch pages
   * diffs
   * Better wiki syntax

Christopher Huhn 23/09/2004: I apt-got ["TWiki"] installed in our intranet more than a year ago and after putting in a lot of content I do not want to miss its features - especially for editing. For the admin it may be complex but not for the user .

I did not have time install the newest release but it seems to be another big step forward.

A lot of its features like
 * multiple categories,
 * topic based access control,
 * revision control,
 * RSS syndication,
 * email notification,
 * session management,
 * attachments
 * code beautification plugin(s)
etc. would fit in perfect here.
