    Hi Franklin,

    Thanks for your interest.

    MoinMoin, the wiki software backing the Debian Wiki, has suffered from slow development recently; the latest release is in 2020, and it is written in Python
    2.7. The Python 3.5 support is still under development.

    Has anyone considered switching to any alternative? The Debian Wiki UI does not
    attract users to contribute (no Wiki syntax highlight in the editor, for example).

    I guess it could be useful, and would need someone willing to do the (lots of) work and migration.

    See also https://bugs.debian.org/501954 wiki.debian.org: #501954: "use MediaWiki instead of MoinMoin" for some (old) background.
