It'd require patches to moin.  IE: We'd either have to get rid of all of
the users or gut the mailing section of the wiki I guess.  Just a
reminder to those that aren't familiar with it.  Moin iterates over
every user who has page watch lists (currently in the thousands) to find
out who to notify.  As the number of our users increases and as the
number of the pages they watch increase moin gets slower and slower on
page saves.
It would be doable though.  When I looked ~ a year ago, there were only
two places in the code that would need to be hacked to replace the email
subsystem.  I imagine we could find a single point in the code to hack
if we just made finding the subscribed pages function return
'fedora-wiki-commits-list r c' instead of parsing each user's config
file and returning that list.

I think I've suggested this before, but shouldn't we first try to fix Moin rather than spend time wondering if we can convert all the data to Mediawiki? We have a lot of talented Python people in this project, it shouldn't be impossible to do.

In the time we've had issues / complaints with it. No one has actually fixed anything. I think part of this is because of the moin design which is very "small wiki" oriented I guess. People like moin and all but in the past I've heard "1.6 will have it" and even now I've heard "1.7 will have that" but where are they? We needed these changes a while ago but AFAIK almost no work has been done on any of our issues (category based pages, notifications, and shared storage logging come to mind)
