Wiki Rebuild (Again)

The DekiWiki on a VM which looked a promise for stability and easy of administration made me extremely frustrated yesterday.
After running the wikiupdate script and the debian vm apt-get upgrade, I just go into an half work system, any wiki edits would just return numeric errors, those keep you away from following up a resolution.
The solution was to find a new wiki engine, after some research I have selected MoinMoin. It was very easy to setup and run (it can run as a simple python app service). I just had some troubles customizing the ACLs to my needs.
I also took the change to do some wiki reorganization, it does look cleaner now.

MoinMoin is used by a lot of Linux distros so I guess support won't be a big issue.
