a test instance to setup or migrate the production wiki to Moin 1.6?

Not sure, the websites team should probably work with docs on this.  I 
feel like there's a lot of content on the wiki that should be 
elsewhere.  I think removing content from the wiki and moving it 
elsewhere (docs.fp.o or fp.o)  Almost like no end-user content should 
end up in the wiki.  (probably a dream world)

Now this click-through CLA is one that is not tied to the user correct?  
Just something they're prompted with when editing the page with an 
unverified account.  I worry what an army of people who don't have 
enough stake in Fedora to fully sign the CLA will do for/to Fedora.  But 
it is the open way :)  I'd like to get rid of the CLA all together. 

On a side note, there's going to be an FAS session during FUDCon, I'd 
encourage anyone that is interested to come on by.
