I read that a little bit differently : it's a typical NIH syndrom from 
the infra peeps. They *want* to phase out Confluence because it's a tool 
they don't like and they have to maintain. However, I think that instead 
of spending 3 months developping a own home brew solution, they would 
have whipped the auto-export plugin in 2 weeks. I'm not blaming them 
though, but I just think that the auto-export plugin is currently just 
doing its job, so I don't see what is the problem they have today with 
confluence (remember that this page has been written 3 months ago, and 
Daniel Kulp has fixed the auto-export plugin AFAIR).

I may be totally wrong in my perception of the problem though. But in 
any case, I see the migration from confluence as a non urgent thing. I 
have used the internal CMS, and trust me, it's way far from Confluence 
functionalities. It may be good enough for simple pages like the one we 
have on the main apache page, but I would rather continue to use 
Confluence for MINA. Switching to the new CMS would be like coming back 
to moinmoin...

Now, if Vysper wants to move to the new CMS, it's your call, not mine, 
and I'll certainly not -1 a vote if it's called.
