I know, we are all sucked up into other priorities that we need to attend to. The POC in the
cwiki looks great (I would chop off the JIRAs from the home page though ;-) and once we get
those plugin issues fixed we should move over Confluence right away. I'll help out in any
way I can ;-) 

But, until we get there, we should not disrupt what we have working today, no matter how much
we would like to be using a different tool.

btw, let's discuss the plugin issues and solutions on a different thread, let me know when
you have some time to look at it because I've been also trying to get some fixed already.
AFAIK there is no other place for keeping track (discussing actually) of this issues and fixes
other than

We do have a consistent look & feel all across the web site, we should keep it that way

Be careful what you wish for, another joining subproject could come in using MS Front Page
