For (1) you understand me correctly. This is the space we need now to start doing all the
planning and development blueprints.

For (2) I mean a possible way to handle the package user and/or developer user documentation
that will be migrated from the wiki at

BTW - It should not be hard to move content between two confluence spaces if it is put in
the wrong location.

To use MediaWiki someone will need to contribute at infrastructure-dev. Otherwise it is moinmoin
or confluence. I don't care so much, but confluence is well supported here at Apache so it
is an easy choice.

For (3) the options are greater and we can change.

I know we need (1) and it is not much harder to do (2) and (3) prospectively and let the rest
of the PPMC decide.

Here is the jira issue:  (INFRA-3684) Create 3 CWiki Spaces for OpenOffice
