I find it kind of ironic that the Seattle "Perl" Users Group are running a php based wiki.

Don't get wrong I like MediaWiki and you can make a case of being pragmatic but I thought Twiki is real nice Perl based wiki engine (though it is not DB based but I am not sure if this was desired feature). 

Did your research indicate Twiki was hard to manage/administrate?

Just a thought, may be we can discuss this (time permitting) in the next monthly meeting.

Happy Friday!

Subject: SPUG: SPUG Wiki replaced

The MediaWiki based SPUG Wiki at http://mediawiki.seattleperl.org/ has now
replaced the Kwiki-based SPUG Wiki formerly at
http://wiki.seattleperl.org/. Now all you SPUG Wiki needs can be found at
http://wiki.seattleperl.org/ using the MediaWiki software.

Why? It just turns out to be much simpler to manage from a sysadmin

I managed to replace the stock MediaWiki flower icon with a camel (The
Camel) on the Wiki.
