How can sphinx and moin wiki cooperate? work flow, data flow, how to implement?


Currently we write all documentation in our repository as rst files (see docs/ directory).

We also want to use the moin2 wiki to create wiki items for documentation which can be used by sphinx.

The task is about finding a way how this cooperation can be gracefully achieved.

You have to consider:

  • moin docs for users, for developers, for admins
  • how can we show documentation on the wiki?
  • how can we modify/extend documentation on the wiki?
  • how can we deal with documentation for different moin releases?
  • how can we show changes between releases?
  • differences between moin2 rst converter and sphinx capabilities.

You'll have to do a lot of thinking, researching and experimentation with rst and sphinx.

Deliverables: wiki page with a rather precise plan for work flow, data flow, how to implement
