Well, the idea behind using MoinMoin was to keep the entry barrier
(technically low) and so make it easy for non technicians to contribute.
 Using a Wiki is fairly easy (while still has the pros of having a
history and diffs) and doesn't need much explanations; version control
systems do, especially for non developers, who aren't familiar with
similar systems.

Yours sincerely,

PS: But I'm not that happy with MoinMoin, too. I especially dislike,
that it keeps texts as very long lines, instead of breaking them at ~80;
that would make the diffs MoinMoin sends out much easier to read!
