OK ... point taken ... never used a Wiki before but have now signed up. It seems to me that a multi-user WordPress is critical to its future. The point of my previous anonymous post was that the WordPress MU announcement gives the impression of a coherent development multi blog generating activity. Yet when I look at the Wiki I can find no mention of this work? So someone like me who is evaluating different open source candidates for large scale adoption in say a university finds it hard to come to any decisions. I really want to use WordPress but to scale up it's use for potentially thousands of users the process has got to be automated, e.g. . authenticate against LDAP database, authorize via student record database, automatically generate blog, e.g. http://www.mydomain.ac.uk/wordpress/myusername. At the same time we need the facility for external users to sign up for a blog by filling in a simple form, e.g. name of blog, user id, password and that's it.
