[Freedombox-discuss] Our wikis: ikiwiki, mediawiki

With version 0.20 we have 2 wikis in Freedombox: ikiwiki and mediawiki.
I think we should provide guidance to our users which one to use when.
I made myself familiar with ikiwiki (running a homepage on it now) and
I know mediawiki from Wikipedia. 

So I'd like to collect material for our manual. Wikipedia could be a
starting point, (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_wiki_softw
are ) has some info but it looks not so complete, e.g. ikiwiki is only
rarely mentioned. 

So to start the collection, what was the reasoning to include both?
What target audience are they for? Who should use which? Or is it just
the syntax? 

Once sufficient material is available, I am thinking of putting a page
"Wiki / Homepage" into the manual that re-directs to ikiwiki and
mediawiki. That page would contain this guidance.
