I am using MoinMoin now for almost three years. I had no knowledge
about IIS, Apache, CGI, FastSGI, WSGI, Python. As a consequence of
that I had to spend quite some time on how to get things working, but
in total it wasn't too bad, although it would have been much easier
would I have chosen Apache over IIS in the first place. Unfortunately
I struggled with IIS for almost two years before finally going for
Apache. Much easier to understand.

However, there is one big flaw: Documentation!
Very often I am struggling with MoinMoin's documentation. Quite often it's ...

* lacking basic information
* is not as clear as you would like it to be
* it's outdated

Searching via Google can also be painful because it is sometimes
difficult to find the right piece of information between all the stuff
related to very old versions.

Without Rick Vanderveers help pages I might have given up.

I think that this is an area where MoinMoin needs attention.
