I have a few pages I have to stage occasionally. 

However, I don't do anything as fancy as a stage server, and I might suggest that's completely overkill.  All I do is simply draft the page on a new separate page on my personal wiki page (with read/write rights set to none for all but me).  Then, when comes time to make the page live, I simply copy the wiki markup and paste it into the target page.  Easy!

If you have a handful of images, you can upload them separately, or go into the backend and move them from the draft page to the target page.  Whichever is easier.

(using moin-1.9.3)

I'd like to set up a staging area for a small subset of important
top-level wiki pages (about half a dozen). The intention is to prepare
and experiment with a new version of contents, then when everything
looks alright push the change to its primary location within the
document hierarchy, replacing the old-version of these same documents.

I wonder what would be a suitable and comfortable approach
to implement this.

Two ideas come to mind:

- set up an alternative back-side wiki, register it as an InterWiki,
 and use moin synchronization. This seems to be an overkill for staging
 just a few pages. Is it possible to synchronize from the same wiki???

- prepare the new set of pages (perhaps using templates), giving them
 a unique name, then Include() them from the primary document.
 Switching to a new version would involve replacing the name
 in the Include macro calls.

Any other suggestions?

Having a 'copy' action available (similar to 'rename') could be
useful too.
