Looks good (i also like the foobar theme), but sometimes weird. To add a new page i had to click through some sites first, to confirm it i had to click OK at the top(!?)
and there were no preview option...
Then i copied the "source" of a wiki entry from wine into it and viewed the result, all listings and tables work fine but links like:
[http://source.winehq.org/git/wine.git/?a=search&h=HEAD&st=commit&s=+ARM ARM commits]
are not recognized, so i'm rather scared of upgrading or did i missed something?

Further it seems a bit more complicated with Wine, the moinmoin wiki is sponsored by http://lattica.com/ (whatever sponsored means, didn't find further information) and the code
is not accessable via a wine git repo (maybe it should be in tools.git, website.git or its own). This also leads to the fact that we still have no new wiki theme years after the
theme change on the website.

Now that we upgraded the Forum engine we (we as in laxdragon xD) could maybe do something about the wiki, it needs love.
It seems Kyle is doing a good job at the content, but the content is not everything.
