Smallest Federated Wiki Goals ============================= Demonstrate that wiki would have been better had it been effectively federated from the beginning. Explore federation policies necessary to sustain an open creative community.

Client Goals ============ Offer to a user a browsing experience that is independent of any specific server. Support writing, editing and curating of one server in a way that offers suitable influence over others.

Server Goals ============ Encourage the deployment of independently owned content stores. Support community among owners through systematic sharing of content.
