6== MediaWiki ==
7
8MediaWiki is the software used for Wikipedia [http://www.wikipedia.org/] and the
9other Wikimedia Foundation websites. Compared to other wikis, it has an
10excellent range of features and support for high-traffic websites using
11multiple servers (Wikimedia sites peak in the 100K+ requests per second range
12as of January 2012).
13
14While quite usable on smaller sites, you may find you have to "roll your own"
15local documentation, and some aspects of configuration may seem overcomplicated
16because MediaWiki is primarily targeted as an in-house tool.

18The MediaWiki software was written by:
19* Lee Daniel Crocker
