I have been playing with TWiki this last few days and have decided to adopt
it as a documentation mechanism for the sys. admins. at Dept. of Computer
Science at ANU. It just requires mod_perl installed and seems to run quite
happily. It allows _anyone_ (or a limited number, if someone wants to
administer user databases) to create and edit pages on the web site
using just a browser.

It can be a little clunky, but it would probably fit this purpose just
fine, if your server is up to generating the HTML on the fly all the time.
