One of the coredevs for Moin uses lighty for his own work on Moin stuff
so I've no doubts that lighthttpd itself will do fine by moin.
If we're looking at php were we thinking of a bb or what?
I need to know what auth model you guys would like in moinmoin. It's
pluggable so many things are possible, and I'd rather hear the thoughts
of the group rather than attempt to list possibilities.

The plan was for all the spinner/cgi thingies to get turned into macros,
actions, or a combo of these with cronjobs under/in-combo-with moin, so
that the horrible slowness of CGI goes away forever. If we'd like to stay
linked on the linux counter that may have to stay an applet; I haven't
investigated anything about that one.

Now that some of the new hardware for gemini has passed burn in I've turned
its apache back on. Sorry about that, but a dying site would be worse than
an inaccessible one imo and during the first phases it was up and down a
*lot* while I was juggling parts.
(gemini's full set of purposes are ending up split onto two machines, but
the outward facing purposes will remain on the name gemini, so don't worry
