As far as I understand there are currently two MoinMoin wikis:

Are we talking about both?

As regards the community help wiki, there is a much more urgent issue:
Due to a spambot incident, it's actually not a wiki for the time being,
since only a small group of editors has access to make changes.

There is an open RT ticket:

Sure, if the current wiki software isn't sufficient to handle the
current sizes of the wikis, I'm all for a change.


My main concern is about priorities. The emergency wiki issue is
described in the RT ticket. Please fix that issue first.
