Glad to see we have a list now. Thanks!

I'm the chair of the DDWG, a group that has been using moinmoin for some
time but the group would much prefer to be using MediaWiki, and for that
reason I'm putting together some code to port a complete moinmoin wiki
to MediaWiki, including all the revisions and attachments, while
hopefully retaining the URLs (or something close enough to map
automatically). I intend to have something to show in about a week, once
I get a few rather urgent tasks off my desk.

Subject: Welcome to public-wiki-dev@w3.org, Introduction

I've just asked for this new mailing list to be created and took the
liberty of subscribing you.

The stated purpose of this list:

     This list is for talking about the development (installation,
     configuration, customization, and extension) of wikis at W3C for
     W3C groups, including wiki-related tools. Administrative requests
     (eg for a new wiki) and such should still go to sysreq@w3.org. 

         -- http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-wiki-dev/

Perhaps we can each say a few words about who we are and what we have in
mind here....

I'll start:

I'm the staff contact for the RIF and OWL Working Groups.  RIF's been
using MoinMoin heavily for two years now [1], including generating its
TRs out of the wiki, using wiki-tr [2], which I wrote.  OWL has just
started, and plans to do the same, but since it's new it was able to
just use MediaWiki [3].   With Alan Ruttenberg's help I think the setup
is pretty good.   See the scribe-output in the wiki [4], although that
process is not fully automated at this point.

I got involved with Wikis as we were installing MoinMoin, back in 2003,
and did a lot of work with it for a few months before I lost interest
[5].  I'm currently pretty excited about MediaWiki.
