I want to use a customizable wiki for task management, collecting
ideas, general notes and little 'manuals' for myself.
I liked Kwiki initially because it looked easy to customize, but I
saw that lots of people were working on some useful customizations that
looked useful, like RCS integration. I waited, and got some more
versions, but suddenly I was having a hard time getting them to run on my
Win32 laptop. I spent some debug time, then waited for a later version
trying to get that to work, with no success so far.

6. I would like it if I don't have to run Apache to run this system.
Should be able to run from a perl based web server

Any ideas? I would like to hear what systems other people use for this
kind of organization, maybe I am looking in the wrong direction. In

yet found a system that feels like a good match to help me with that.
