Hi all,

Note also that almost no current wiki runs on top of a VCS.

Also, CVS is getting obsolete and fewer and fewer people uses it
nowadays, where either Subversion, as a drop-in replacement, or one of
the newer "distributed version control systems" such as darcs [2],
bazaar (David Allouche contributes to it) [3], mercurial [4]
substitute it.

At the moment I know two Wikis wich run on top of VCS SVNWiki[1], wich is made on Scheme and Trac[2]. I think that we're talkin about trying to solve a more general problem about "evolution" of documents and the idea of having a VCS plus your favorite editor is really nice for this. Of course having this in particular for TeXmacs is nice also and anyone with this particular need and the time/knowledge could try to get solution for TeXmacs or inside it. I want to have VCS for my thesis document made in TeXmacs, so I would try to use a general VCS plus a Wiki (may be Trac) for that and I will share the advances with you. Depending on results may be this could be extended for other programs (OpenOffice, Leo, etc) and the documents that we create on them. The underlaying idea is that computers are "cognitive machines" to help us to store the story of our ideas and the relations between them, so having a hipertextual wiki like VCS seems fine for this.
