As I said, I am willing to help in any way I can. Getting confluence up 
and running is fairly simple. IIRC, Aaron offered some time ago a 
MoinMoin to confluence migration tool, so migrating the current content 
should not be a show stopper.

IMHO, the current wiki still should have major surgery, independently of 
whether it will be migrated or not. There is a lot of 
unnecessary/redundant information there.

There has been endless discussions on whether a wiki is the right "tool" 
or not for documentation. Well, for the Geronimo project we could even 
maintain both, the current wiki and confluence (to ease the transition). 
Limiting confluence to just documentation (like JBoss wiki), host it 
within the ASF and make it official (see the Geronimo documentation 
page, "...There is not yet a full manual or similar official 

By "make it official" I mean to work all the necessary aspects to make 
it official (technical accuracy, up-to-date, complete, etc). I'm already 
working on this ;)

I keep thinking that for many users Geronimo will be as good as its 
documentation. V1 is around the bend, if we don't tell the users how 
"good" and simple Geronimo is, they'll use some other product that is 

In the mean time, could anybody make a reference to the confluence site 
from the official Geronimo documentation page 

Sorry for the size of the note.
