Hi Sijis*,

I'll post the little bit of conversation we had on IRC so others can
see what I meant, since I didn't do a good job of explaining.  Thanks
for asking about it!

<stickster> sijis: Zikula is the content management system we're
working on, and it may have a knowledge base-type function that would
keep us from having to evaluate yet another application to run on
<ricky> stickster: Hey, I'm curious as to what your thoughts are on
wiki vs. zikula for a knowledge-base/howto type thing
<stickster> ricky: The wiki is more difficult to enforce a review
 That's the chief difference IMHO
<ricky> I think a collection of good howtos is one of the biggest
things that Fedora is missing in being a more newbie-friendly distro
<stickster> ricky: I agree.
 The Docs Project is the place to help with that, no doubt.
 HOWTOs could easily be on the wiki
<sijis> stickster: yeah, i know that you guys are working on
zikula. thakns for the info. i agree it would be better to stay on a
single platform.
 stickster: i thought it would be helpful, simialr to what ricky is
 talking about.
<stickster> I agree, a KB is something we've wanted to try for a long time

* Also, if you don't mind, please put your replies at the bottom of
  email, it makes them so much easier to read!  Thanks.
