Why would we "go under" the Hadoop wiki?

Subject: [DISCUSS] Accumulo wiki 

There has been talk about establishing some wiki space for the Accumulo 
project. ASF offers two wiki platforms: MoinMoin at and 
Confluence at Each has pros and cons, and if we establish 
a wiki we should just pick one. 

I believe the MoinMoin site is more prevalent ASF-wide, and there is 
already a Hadoop wiki [1] established which we would go under. We can 
request members of its AdminGroup [not viewable] to add us to the 
ContributorsGroup [2], and then we would be able to author content. (We can 
ask infra as well.) 

The Confluence site offers some extra features like commenting and perhaps 
looks nicer (certainly subjective). There is a page [3] touching on some 
differences. To get started there, we would request a "space" from infra. 

Related projects on MoinMoin: Hadoop, HBase 
Related projects on Confluence: Hive, Pig, ZooKeeper (all having migrated 
from MoinMoin) 

So, questions to be answered: 

1) Shall we establish a wiki? (I can call a vote if needed.) 
2) Which platform? 
3) Who is interested in edit rights?
