It's a moin wiki, so it works the same way as yours. :)

There is a page "Documentation" and "HowTo/*", try to collaborate there.

I guess the best will be if we start a fresh wiki for moin2 (and using
moin2, as soon as it is stable enough).

Until then, we'll have to live with the current one and try to organize
it better and keep stuff updated.

I couldn't read that page, it was just showing a surge protection msg to
me, but the page name looks like it is a system page from moin.

Some stuff with mod_wsgi is even easier than with cgi. E.g. if you want
your wiki to appear at the root url of your site. Or if you want your
moin code to run under a different uid/gid than the web server.

BTW, you can also join us on IRC, see http://moinmo.in/MoinMoinChat .
