I searched for a suitable Wiki during the weekend, and came up with these
http://www.wikimatrix.org/compare/MoinM ... iki+UseMod
-The MoinMoin is used by the Ubuntu people (they should know something)
-The TikiWiki is an interesting concept of a Content Management System plus Wiki (we could develop a whole portal in it)
-The UseMod is quite simple
I added Twiki as well, globalqss
and yes, the phpwiki looks nice
Here is a small intro to Wikies:
and here is the video of the presentation (for those who are bored to read
) ) :

The question is, as allways, what features do we need?
All Wikies are good for up to 10.000 pages, and those that use a database can go over 100.000. A manual could use ~1.000 and the documentation another ~3.000 at most. Something like a knowledge base would need more.
And we should check on the spam protection.
So I suggest to set up a Wiki to decide which Wiki to use
Seriously, now, I like PhpWiki and MoinMoin - Any suggestions?
2) About the retstrictions in Compiere licence (language, client etc)
I don't know how these restrictions will be implemented - maybe the code would be exactly the same but you would need a support contract if you use more than one language etc - this applies to the light version, which IMO is what would be GPL'ed - correct me if I didn't get it right.
3) The community and JJ
I would welcome JJ to take part in this forum. It would be even a viable, low-cost development strategy for Compiere ERP & CRM -Get all functionality in the GPL version, and add database clustering and other large-scale enterprise features in the Compiere, Inc. supported version. And who would be better qualified to support large deployments if not Compiere, Inc. and its certified partners? This way the market of Compiere, Inc. would be the large installations with the large contracts. But, in order to get to large deployments (which are always the most sought-after contracts), you have to have experience. And partners will get experience through the low-end of the market. And everybody will promote each others work. This has always been the case. So both the community and Compiere, Inc. will win. And, with a huge user base, Compiere ERP & CRM will become something like the Ubuntu of ERP's. We should work together in this. After all, it is much better to own a small slice of a very large pie, than have the whole of a very small pie.
BTW, Red1, why everytime I try to login to post a reply, i get a "404" page, but if I press "back" twice and get to the forum page, it shows that I have logged in allright? Maybe the page after the required login to post messages has a problem?
