    1: Requirements for an official NetBSD wiki:
    2: 
    3: * **UI:** pleasant web editing with preview and diff
    4: * **appearance:** customizable with CSS and templates
    5: * **access control:** publicly readable, editable by developers only, an area readable by developers only
    6: * **web authentication:** Kerberos
    7: * **implementation language:** not PHP
    8: * **revision control:** yes, preferably not something homegrown, even more preferably CVS
    9: * **page rendering strategy:** compiles static pages that can be mirrored
   10: 
   11: Before selecting [ikiwiki](http://ikiwiki.info/), I evaluated the following:
   12: 
   13: [[!table data="""
   14: Software|Language|Versioning|Comments
   15: [Sputnik](http://spu.tnik.org)|Lua|git or filesystem|looks cool
   16: [Foswiki](http://foswiki.org)|Perl|RCS|fork of TWiki, complex install docs, complex software, checkered security history
   17: [Kwiki](http://www.kwiki.org)|Perl|don't remember|old version was so-so, the ambitious rewrite never happened
   18: [MojoMojo](http://www.mojomojo.org)|Perl|SQL|featureful
   19: [MoinMoin](http://moinmo.in)|Python|filesystem| 
   20: """]]
   21: 
   22: In my opinion, ikiwiki is the best fit: written in Perl, with a simple web UI and several ways of restricting access, it not only renders arbitrary hierarchies of static pages, but also is designed to be used in concert with a variety of external revision control systems.
