Subject Re: Installing Confluence [was Re: Manual]

Hmm, are we moving a little too fast on moving to Confluence?   Like
someone said earlier, we've already switched wiki's once, and I don't
know (beyond wiki -> xdoc) what benefits Confluence has over Wikis. 
It may even be easier to update the tool (wiki->xdoc) to understand
the wiki we have now, rather than transferring the entire site over to
a different wiki system, with yet another syntax...
Just my $0.02.
