Well, if you don't want to publish it, make a private repo just for your

OTOH, think about it. Obviously there is a need for such stuff. We had
"modern_cms" some time ago and maybe that just needs some update. Also,
collaborating with some other people needing the same thing is more
interesting than just working on your own.

1.9 is currently in beta, thus it is expected to be released in the next

With some tweaks, you can try supporting multiple moin versions in your
