The wiki is currently implemented using the /MoinMoin platform.

MoinMoin Modifications

The following modifications have been made to the standard moinmoin installation. These are added here mainly as a help to the admin in case of future upgrade...

More country flags

As suggested by SergeyMatveychuk, a bunch of country flags have been added. See the HelpOnSmileys for information on how to use the flags in the wiki.

The flags came from MaxMind and are used here with permission. /!\ TODO as of 20231011, the previous download location of the flag database is no longer available. It may simply be that one needs a login now.

The following (very elegant!) perl oneliner was used to convert to moinmoin config format:

ls *.gif | perl -ne 'chomp; /(.*)\.gif/; print "    \"{flag-$1}\":  (18, 12, 1, \"flags/$1.gif\"),\n";'
