It's really important that you're working on a TikiWiki-related project!
Perhaps you'll be interested on what we wish to create (Alternatives). I saw
Athens Indy and it seems to me that is more user friendly than TW. It seems
that you used mostly the "Articles" TW feature both for Indymedia features
and newswire. Is not used somewhere the "Wiki" TW feature?

Perhaps the TW sister project, Bitweaver (ex-TikiPro), is more evolved than
TW. Do you know it?

We wish to use more the "Wiki" TW feature, as you red. Do you think that what
Jay proposed is possible to make, without big code changes?

Actually we're only at brainstorming stage. Watch the messages in the list to
have an idea of what we're interested to.
Personally I'm interested also to implement a sort of collaborative
bookmarking (like del.icio.us) and a tagging system for all the objects
(articles, wikipages, links, calendar, etc..)... that could be a
simplification of the TikiWiki "Categories"..
