I think we should be cautious not to spend too much effort on a shiny
website. Xesam is about creating a standard and that's pretty much it.
In fact the only reason why we don't use the FDO infrastructure (we
used to do this) for everything was because of the big delays we
suffered trying to get through the FDO bureaucracy (and that they
ran(runs) a slow and old Moin wiki without the Docbook-export plugin).

Can you point to any specific points where this is a problem on
xesam.org... I am not quite sure I understand what you mean.

A lot of what you describe can easily be tweaked in the current Moin
wiki if one just bothers to skin it and add a few plugins.
I would also like to keep everything as close to the FDO
infrastrukture as possible so that it will be easy to migrate back
should that ever become relevant.
