V2 was based on Zope/Plone, which we discovered to have abysmal performance on
the postgresql.org BSD VM. Certainly it wouldn't be able to sustain the
thousands of people a day that buzz through Techdocs (or used to, anyway).

Yeah. The holdup is the templating, which requires a knowledge of Mason.
Unforntunately, I've been unable to locate anyone who knows Mason and has any
free time at all.

A wiki would be fine in general. I like what we have up for "guides".
One request, though: I'd like it to be possible to flag some pages as
"modifiable only by owner". The issue is that sometimes I will want to put
content on Techdocs that has special copyright restrictions (such as magazine
article reprints). This would mean preventing most users from modifying
that page. I know that others have similar content up.
That's the main issue that prevented me from being gung-ho about a wiki for
