Hi Geir,

Isn't it an issue for the whole Apache org? Haven't I seen some emails
about it on general@incubator recently? I think it's not only us who
straggle with the issue and I'd be very pleased to have some sort of
Confluence with SVN support so that content could be easily made
offline and committed to a repo *and* the the same time introduce
changes thru Confluence and have them checked into the repo, too.

I don't know it at all. Do you have any insights on its features?
Something you know after having worked with it for a while?

Absolutely! (but shame on me since I had not as I had voted).

Off looking for some information about Doxygen...
