Well noted. For most of the problems mentioned, the wiki engine is
largely irrelevant, (unless some wikis are just plain broken with
regard to spam or something).

But a common cause of many of the current problems is a general lack
of maintenance. And a wiki engine can help indirectly here if it makes
things less painful to work with[*]. And since you're stepping up to
take charge of a bunch of the maintenance, the engine that makes you
the most productive makes a lot of sense to me anyway. (Plus, I am
pretty happy with ikiwiki---see more below.)


[*] Personally, I've been mostly happy with ikiwiki for the cairo
website. I love that I can edit the wiki with my favorite editor and
"git push" just like code, (while others can still use the web
forms). And we actually have decent-looking pages with graphics even:

which is something that never really happened with moin, (the image
uploading features were far too painful in my experience).
