      Description

      Why not use Confluence for the website? Iam using it for some projects and it is really useful (configurable, keep history, give rights to some users to edit some pages). Indeed it's a wiki

      http://www.atlassian.com/software/confluence/tour/

      Here an example with an existing project:
      http://www.stripesframework.org/display/stripes/Home

      I have seen that a free license is available for opensource projects by filling this form:
      http://www.atlassian.com/software/views/opensource-license-request.jsp

      There is a last issue which is where to host the confluence instance but it seems it's maybe possible to have free hosting. Looks at this post:
      http://serverfault.com/questions/15852/is-there-anywhere-that-has-really-cheap-confluence-wiki-hosting/23376#23376

      Also, I offer to transfer the existing web pages to the confluence if you decide to switch to it.

        We've had a long discussion about the documentation platform. The current resolution is to go with the new Apache CMS, as recommended by infra. We're also planning to use the opportunity to restructure and rewrite the existing documentation form openjena.org. Thanks for the bump though, you're right that it's something we should get on with!

        Confluence was certainly one of our options for the apache jena website. Ian kindly volunteered to investigate, and my understanding is that the svn / cms thing was preferred within apache:

        There is a jena confluence wiki, btw:
