Dumb? So we must already be dumb, then, to be running other things like JVMs
that don't come from the ASF, rather than our own.

Is there a roadmap for when JSPWiki will have all of the features and
functionality of both Confluence and MoinMoin, including the Confluence
macros we use, and the migration tools so that we can move all the existing
data from these existing wikis to JSPWiki? Without that, I don't see us
replacing our existing wikis with JSPWiki, and I'm absolutely not in favour
of adding a third wiki flavour to our infrastructure.

Is this the real reason JSPWiki wants to come to the ASF? To be the wiki
that the ASF runs on?

We also have separate documentation and sandbox wikis.

It's not at all clear from that list that those are wikis and not just
regular web sites. Does JSPWiki have an auto-export capability, like
Confluence does, so that pages can be offloaded to static resources, instead
of hitting the wiki all the time?

You'll need a dedicated team of people, not just one person, that is
committed to doing this on an ongoing basis.
