Subject: RE: [docbook] DocBook Wiki problems

I would suggest taking a look at the markup language for Confluence and the porting tools for moving from MoinMoin before choosing it.  The markup language uses the same token to open and close a macro, which I consider a poor linguistic design.  The porting tools for MediaWiki are pretty primitive and we found that the available macros provide less functionality than those available for MediaWiki (and MoinMoin -- I work with both types).  The port of any significant content could prove to be non-trivial.

Confluence is a good platform. Apache uses it for a lot of their 
projects now a days. Atislan offers a free license for open source projects.
