Errr... it's been Mandriva for a few years now... =) But I like the ACLs there, that's definitely cool. >Additionally, I would like to point out that we are running a bare >installation of DokuWiki with a default (minimal) set of plugins.

Good to know. I don't think we're lacking for anything (yet), but as things grow, who knows? Sounds like docuwiki was a good choice. Now makes me wish I had looked at it a little more closely before settling on mediawiki a few years ago.
