Yeah..I go along with Ulrich's point that we already have a wiki and need
something other. A WCMS would fit that approach best. For example Drupal.
It's modulised so we can easily add modules which show Jabber unique
features. Features like http://wiki.jabber.org/index.php/HTTP-Auth_suite . I
would be available to write one or two modules for it to like password
lookup or online regestration, since you just need to lookup data from a
database. <http://www.dict.cc/?s=things>
