Well, I'm +1 but this raises a significant issue.  There was a request 
by geronimo on the infra list a couple of weeks ago to allow them to use 
different wiki software.  It wasn't what I would call a "concrete" 
proposal in that I don't recall seeing them post the specifics of where 
it would run and who would maintain it.  infra pushed back as they don't 
want too many things to support.

Now the subject of Cocoon using Daisy has already come up there, 
although there was only a single email and no follow-up.  At some point 
we have to approach infra regarding our use of Daisy for documentation 
as we are doing something that really isn't approved - it was only 
supposed to be an experiment when it started.

So if we want to use Daisy for both our documentation and the wiki we 
need to answer several questions:
1. Where is it going to run?
2. Who will administer it?
3. How is the data backed up?
4. Is the data versioned such that every change can be tracked back to 
the individual who did it?
5. How will the system perform? How well does it scale? Will it handle 
the expected load?

Those are just the questions I thought of off the top of my head.
