From what I can tell the state of exporting docbook from MediaWiki
isn't very good. Perhaps that would make a good GSoC for someone. I
don't know if we'd want to run two wikis, but what about using
DocBookWiki for editing the docs?
Will the Docs Project need the wiki for writing documentation if we will soon
have the new Docs platform that DaMaestro is working on? If they still will,
then there's one thing to take into account: Fedora already had a GSoC
project which improved Moin's DocBook exporting support
We haven't been very successful in getting our code into upstream and in this
case they would want a maintainer for that code as well before merging it.
Nobody has stepped up to do it, but still migrating to MediaWiki might cause
us losing the work of one GSoC project and having to set up another doing
basically a lot of the same work on a different platform.
(I'm not saying we absolutely shouldn't migrate to MediaWiki - and the
decision isn't mine to make anyway - but I just wanted to mention this as it
came up in the discussion.)
