Is Drupal’s wiki really Mediawiki inside? In other words, will tweaked versions of Mediawiki work w/ Drupal?

(You): Is Drupal’s wiki really Mediawiki inside? In other words, will tweaked versions of Mediawiki work w/ Drupal?

(Steven): Nope – completely different products. Drupal was written independent of Mediawiki.

(You): List, thanks. So the Drupal wiki supports Mediawiki markup (so it says), but isn’t in any way Mediawiki?

(Steven): It’s a common form of markup (markdown). So yes.

(You): ah, got it. Bummer. I wanted to integrate Drupal w/ my custom Mediawiki alteration.

(Steven): yeah, that’s a waste.
