RE: Problems with Limitations or "Differences" of Subversion

 Trac can store them in a variety of ways including sqlite, postgres and
mysql (with 0.10.1). I believe it was first built on sqlite so that's the
best supported and it works pretty good. Makes backup a breeze as well
since it's stored in a file format in your trac 'enviroment' area. The
thing with trac is you actually get a button called 'browse source' that can
be linked to an svn repository, this isn't to store the wiki pages but
instead to view an actual code repository. The ticket system uses the sql
backend you select to store it's data as well. They've also implemented a
discussion board system (thru a plugin) that makes it a bit more extensible
to developers working in an entirely virtual enviroment.

More generally, you probably want a "content management system" (CMS), of
which wikis are members. Two I've seen recommended are Mediawiki (used by
Wikipedia) and Drupal.

A CMS is an online documentation system, and a wiki is a version-controlled
CMS. Different wikis store the versioning in different ways. Mediawiki
stores the revisions in a database (eg. MySQL). Twiki stores revisions in
RCS files. I'd guess that Trac stores revisions in Subversion.

A common problem with public wikis is defacement (including spam). The
versioning means that you can remove the defacement by reverting to an
earlier revision.
