Anyone use gmail? Anyone use it while it was still "beta"? :-)

I hope this thread has sufficiently motivated enough people to  
support bloody crazy confluence that it will keep being supported.

The one thing you don't want is something outside of the ASF  
infrastructure. Really, you don't. Existing SF infrastructure for  
historical reasons, sure. Something new, not smart.

What you may want is to keep disagreeing on how useful confluence is,  
and arrange enough peer pressure to have atlassian fix the bloody  
thing, or be annoyed enough to bloody well fix it yourself, and stamp  
your feet until someone lets you, and then be real surprised when  
you're thanked for stamping your feet so much and asked to be on the  
ASF board (but that's getting ahead of myself, really).

Or maybe not.

More background:

I still haven't baked that cake. For the record -- I help out a  
little bit with jira and confluence maintainance at work, and I think  
they suck, too. I'm a grumpy ol' wiki hater these days. People should  
be helping make SubWiki the best thing since sliced breads instead of  
routinely having this discussion...
