Hi Will,

Thanks for the pointer to foswiki, if we are going to host something
ourselves this looks like it's worth a close look.
Personally I don't mind MediaWiki, although others on the team are not
of the same mind :-)

Confluence, while it is a nice option for a small team,
doesn't really fit with the needs of an open source project that wants a
wiki for it's large userbase to use and contribute to.
ie: the licensing costs are prohibitive.
