[Server-devel] Wikiserver on XS

I tried setting up a Wiktionary server on a shared server that our
pilots have access to and it was a major pain in the ass. After 3 days I
couldn't get it to work. I had a lot of trouble downloading and
importing the images, perhaps Chris Ball's wikislices gets this right. I
will have to look at the code and ask him. 

The wikislices are alright but they don't allow for searching for
content which I think is an essential feature.

it's in the plan, but it's not there yet. The (drafty) plan is to have

 - a slightly customised mediawiki install for local (created in the
school) content and collab activities
 - perhaps a 2nd mediawiki install to host editable wikislices OR
 - non-editable install of a wikislice

For the wikislices, have a look at the great wiork that cjb has done
for the Spanish wikislice that runs directly on the XO.

If you install a vanilla mediawiki, chances are it will be reasonably
easy to migrate later (for someone with a bit of linux admin skills)
to what we deploy. Ah, note that we're working on PostgreSQL.
