Getting started with Kuma

Draft
This page is not complete.

This is an introductory guide to the Kuma wiki platform that powers MDN. "Kuma" is the Japanese word for "bear;" we chose this name because it's a bigger, more powerful creature than Kitsune ("fox"), the software on which it's based that powers the SUMO web site.

Note: What's left here needs to move into the Kuma project documentation.

Servers

We have several servers for MDN, based on the state of development of the platform.
