As part of a
research that I was doing for a project within our organization I was looking
for a wiki-like content management system and while searching for such software
I found the TogerWiki, LionWiki, PumaWiki, WiKiss and some other derivatives and
Since none of them
met our exact requirements we started changing the WiKiss code. We cleaned it up
a little and added English comments, but also removed (or rather disabled) some
functionality that was not needed for our project.
The major addition
(improvement) though is the modified plugin system and the breaking of the code
into various classes according to the OOP principals.
What we have as a
result is code compatible with PHP 5.
I know that
forking a project is not the best thing you can do but we just have specific
requirements. After so many changes our wiki will probably become very different
from what is the original work.
We will, of
course, share the produced source code with the community. It should be covered
by the GPL 2 license as the original work. We will do that as soon as we have
part of our repository available for anonymous access. Another idea is to put it
Since I was not
able to find the email address of the original WiKiss developer I thought that I
should share this in that mailing list as a sign of courtesy to the original
developer of that code..
