There was a change in the directory structure with Moin 1.3.0 -- check
out the CHANGES file in the Moin-1.3.x/docs directory.  You will have a
lot of trouble trying to downgrade the Moin version below 1.3.  If you
cannot find a Debian package at 1.3.4 you will be better off installing
the current 1.5.1 package.  Moving your 1.3.4 directory to 1.5.1
requires no changes to the data directory.
