-== MediaWiki ==
-MediaWiki is the software used for Wikipedia [] and the
-other Wikimedia Foundation websites. Compared to other wikis, it has an
-excellent range of features and support for high-traffic websites using
-multiple servers (Wikimedia sites peak in the 100K+ requests per second range
-as of January 2012).
-While quite usable on smaller sites, you may find you have to "roll your own"
-local documentation, and some aspects of configuration may seem overcomplicated
-because MediaWiki is primarily targeted as an in-house tool.
-The MediaWiki software was written by:
