This page also points to support resources and informations about MoinMoin development status and plans.

For support, please try the documentation, the homepage, the irc channel and the mailing list before contacting the MoinMoin authors directly.


See docs/CHANGES for a version history. READ THIS! See docs/INSTALL.html for installation instructions. See docs/UPDATE.html for updating instructions.

Note that the code base contains some experimental or unfinished features. Use them at your own risk. Official features are described on the set of help pages contained in the distribution wiki.


I like to thank especially these people for their valuable ideas and contributions:

Ward Cunningham <> for inventing WikiWiki in the first place.

Martin Pool <> for providing the base of what now is MoinMoin, see also docs/licenses/pikipiki.txt.

Marko Schulz <> for providing input on the first versions of MoinMoin as it evolved.

Tom Holroyd <> provided the set of emoticons that come with the standard distribution, and came up with the idea to add that feature.

Richard Jones <> who provided so much code in so little time that I could not keep up with him. He works on company time, though (unless I'm mistaken). Also found the nasty security hole in release 0.6.

Christian Bird <> provided some nice ideas and some code.

Peter Thoeny and all other people involved in creating TWikiDrawPlugin; for copyright information see docs/licenses/twikidraw.txt; for more information and a download link to get the source refer to

Thomas Waldmann for the major effort of translating all the help and system pages to German, and increasing volumes of code.

Bernhard Rosenkraenzer and Andrew Bennetts for password login patches.

Florian Festi, Bastian Blank, Oliver Graf and Nir Soffer for many code contributions.

Alexander Schremmer for much testing work, code contributions and finally fixing the win32 stuff.

Arcelor S.A. for sponsoring MoinMoin v1.5 GPL development.

And all the people I forgot or that are mentioned in the code.
