If you'd like to get involved, please do! These are the people who have contributed to the backend of Davis Wiki in some way:

Please see [WWW] for more information.


For wiki-centric stuff, please email <daviswiki AT gmail DOT com> (for now).


We started the site using [WWW]MoinMoin, a popular wiki engine. However, we have throughly hacked the [WWW]MoinMoin code in nearly every respect. We maintain information about our open-source wiki software, called Sycamore, at [WWW]

For our site-search we are using the [WWW]Xapian API. It's an indexing and querying system that seems to work well.

More can be found in Wiki History.

Would Daviswiki like $500? Here's the deal: I need Sycamore installed on my in-house corporate server, but first I need it modified to accept text, pdf and doc attachments. Modify Sycamore, help me install it on my server, and I'll a) donate $500 to your fund and b) contact a couple of my local corporate friends and see if they will make matching donations. Here's the fine print:My server runs Windows Server 2003. Apache and perl are already installed and working. I must have enough information to create documentation on how to do a bare-metal restore of Sycamore. For the donation, I need some document showing your tax-exempt status or else I'll have to give it to an individual along with a 1099 form. The $500 is due and payable when Sycamore is up and running to my satisfaction. If anyone is interested in helping me, please contact me at or call 297-6073 and ask for Jim
