* Members of the '''[[Moin Pages Editor Group|MoinPagesEditorGroup]]''' can read, write, revert, and delete special [[MoinMoin:SystemPages|SystemPages]].
 
* Members or the [[Admin Group|AdminGroup]] can read, write, revert, and delete ''all'' pages. Additionally they can change ACLs (see [[MoinMoin:HelpOnAccessControlLists|HelpOnAccessControlLists]]) and edit special pages, like
 
** [[Page Deletor Group|PageDeletorGroup]]
 
** [[Moin Pages Editor Group|MoinPagesEditorGroup]]
 
** [[Admin Group|AdminGroup]]
 
 
 
These rights are defined like so:
 
 
 
<pre>acl_rights_before = 'AdminGroup:read,write,revert,delete,admin'
 
acl_rights_default = 'PageDeletorGroup:read,write,revert,delete Known:read,write,revert All:read,write'
 
</pre>
 
 
 
Note that deleting a page is not a dangerous thing. It can be reverted quickly. However, ''renaming'' a page can destroy a transcluded [[WikiDocs]] page ([[Dont Rename Wiki Docs Pages|DontRenameWikiDocsPages]]!). Since [[Moin Moin|MoinMoin]] has no special "rename" right (renaming requires read, write, and delete), we are ''very'' reluctant to give out delete rights.
 
 
 
==Status of the Wiki==
 
 
 
We ported the wiki to a [[Moin Moin|MoinMoin]] wiki-engine. See [[Moin Moin Wiki Syntax|MoinMoinWikiSyntax]] for changes to the old [[Use Mod|UseMod]] syntax. Also you will have to register again with your old [[Wiki Name|WikiName]].  
 
  
This wiki is a permanent WIP (work in progress). The project to [[Restructure The Wiki|RestructureTheWiki]] is largely complete and we are now [[Restructuring The Documentation|RestructuringTheDocumentation]].  There is information on the [[Status Of This Wiki|StatusOfThisWiki]] to tell you which parts are stable and which are "in progress". Things will probaly get worse during the time we implement [[WikiDocs]].
