Is it too late to ditch TWiki and swap to MoinMoin, which is a wiki written in Python rather than Perl? We use MoinMoin at work and although it doesn't have as many features as Twiki, it is trouble-free and also, for Pythonistas, the source code understandable. It is siple enough that the entire source can be examined in less than an hour, if you are keen (um, I skimmed through it...).

This discussion last came up around December after had been hacked.

I don't think it would be a matter of "too late". Not a lot has been invested in anything that is "TWiki specific". I understand "TWiki forms" to be a big advantage but I have so far lacked the technical comfort to get them going. So only if someone else got it going with us having significant investment would it be more of a problem.

Mainly (I think) it was that David Grant was familiar enough to get TWiki installed originally, then he and Karsten installed it at which was hacked through its vulnerability (Horst has himself used TikiWiki being more sure of its security... it is however written in php). Then Carlos and David installed / set up TWiki at salaam.

If someone were to set up MoinMoin I would happily invest what time I can to get a bit more familiar with it. If someone deciphered its directory structure (maybe creating a Gnumed web within it) it could be tried copying the existing pages from TWiki and we could see what results. But the opening of this paragraph were key (as it is with this project in general): "If someone were to set up..."
