Like Anderson said, it's much easier to backup because it doesn't use a
database backend. We already discussed all of this before. Read
Specifically, we chose TWiki because it is so much easier to mirror then
a LAMP or Plone system.

I don't want anybody else to maintain it! :-) So I'm trying to find ways
to make it easier on me and at the same time, easier for *all* of us.
That way, once it's setup, nobody is dependent on me for fixing the
stylesheet, or adjusting the navigation list, or adding a new project
(all of which are fairly laborious processes which require some intimate
knowledge of XHTML/CSS and the LFS website). Best of all, everyone will
be able to maintain their own content, using plain text or HTML. I like
to think that is a worthy goal.
