    If the only benefit is "our own family", I do not see this as a
strong reason to risk for either data loss or hard work.  Actually, the
previous admin Terry may have made some tweak on the MediaWiki.  The
most concern for me is not data loss (we have backup), but if the wiki
can still run as before.

    Also there are at least four questions that I see immediately.

   1. You said there will be no data loss.  Could we assume JSPWiki is a
successor of MediaWiki?

   2. Are the currently-enabled plugins have their corresponding plugins
in JSPWiki?

   3. Could there be a test machine that we can test first before change?

   4. What will be changed on the user side?
