 Even if I learn how to install and admin the media wiki properly, I 
will be not around quite often to do that, even after settling down I 
travel quite a bit and when Im on some international hacker event I can
 not really take care about some issues or updates etc. so I will need 
some reliable person to take the burden of admin work anyway and I do wonder how much more difficult it is under media wiki compared to doku wiki.</span></div><div></div><div>Frantisek Algoldor Apfelbeck</div><div><br><br>
