this is my 1st post to this list, I work on education using technology
as one of the most important means.

I collaborate actively in then MoinMoin Wiki project (wiki we use for
Edubuntu and many other ubuntu related sites).

What I do not understand, so far, is why edubuntu would need a SVN for
documentation when Moin can work as such, as well.

All documentation can be generated and admined by Moin, unless what
you want is to have SVN because the source files must be .sxw, .sxc,
.doc, etc.

And if so, are documents needed to be in those formats or any format
different than .html? If so, why is not possible to use Moin to
generate all kinds of documents and therefore enable wider
possibilites of effective collaborative documentation work?
