I think you may want to call moin ... maint makecache to create all
cache files beforehand (deployment needs to be offline)
Afterward you can remove the write right to the underlay pages
chmod -R a-w  wiki/underlay/pages/*

The underlay keeps the pages delivered from moin. It is separated from
your data to make upgrading easier for you. What do you mean by outside
"of their scope"?
