You might want to visit the LanguageSetup page on your wiki. Here is the 
corresponding page on the MoinMoin site:


On your wiki's version of that page, there will be a link under "Installing 
page packages" entitled "install help and system page packages". That should 
show you a table of different page packages that you can click on.

If you don't get the table of packages but get an error ("Only superuser is 
allowed to use this action.") then you need to specify a superuser in your 
wikiconfig.py file and log in as this user.

Don't worry about it! This configuration stuff is not particularly obvious and 
I've been using various scripts and reminders to help me get it done for 
several years now.

Also don't worry about it! :-)
