Who is the primary MoinMoin support resource at Canonical? It would be great
to hear their opinion. In addition, if this effort were to move forward is

Allen -

2) Install this version in a test environment configured for performance and

3) Migrate the data for testing

7) Test the solution for defects and performance metrics

8) Make changes as required

9) Promote the new solution into production
