Yes, your understanding is correct.

Because the Solr Reference Guide is released as official documentation
in PDF form shortly after each new minor Solr version, only committers
have the ability to edit the confluence wiki.  Anyone can comment on it,
so we do have a feedback mechanism.

Anyone can edit the MoinMoin wiki, after they ask for edit rights and
provide their username for the Solr portion of that wiki.  Asking for
edit permission is typically done via this mailing list or the IRC channel.

Because they have different potential authors, the two systems now serve
different purposes.

There are still some pages on the MoinMoin wiki that contain
documentation that should be in the reference guide, but isn't.

The MoinMoin wiki is still useful, as a place where users can collect
information that is useful to others, but doesn't qualify as official
documentation, or perhaps simply hasn't been verified.  I believe this
means that a lot of information which has been migrated into the
reference guide will eventually be removed from MoinMoin.

Thanks,
Shawn
