I'm surprised to hear that each Confluence "instance" (instance per
project, roughly) would need maintenance at all.  I figured they all sat
under some kind of umbrella that managed everything.  ~shrug~ (and no need
to go into details; I can certainly BELIEVE this to be the case :-)

Personally, not sure I care too much re: confluence vs moin-moin, so maybe
on this basis alone, it would be better to go with moin-moin.

I read up on the "exportable" bits from Confluence, and it sounded "not
great" to me.  Would prefer we don't go down that path.

What I was really asking for was to just not have the "CMS" bits ("official
web site") at all, just (internally) redirect to the wiki.  Seems like this
is something most projects would actually want to do, so if no one's doing
it, there must be a good reason (beside's Ross's note re: commiter vs
non-committer access).

Yes, absolutely.  I'd like to see the "official web site" content be
created once, and never changed, ever.  Just pointers to other lively,
relevant web sites.
