I definitely prefer the lesser administrative headaches with pmWiki
compared to MediaWiki, though I've used both. I've found it pretty
simply to move whole pmwiki installations (I have a couple of
wikifarms at the university I work for).
I've used MoinMoin but since I have negligible Python skills... so,
given my choice I'd go with pmWiki, but am willing to help with
whatever Pascal and others think best.
If Pascal thinks it's a good idea, I can get scidwiki.com (or some
other domain name) setup and provide access to whoever wants to
admin... or we can do whatever makes more sense for the project if
there is another alternative.
I had no idea pmWiki had a chess markup recipe already! That's cool.
