Moin doesn't directly have the "talk" feature that some other wikis
do, sorry.

It can have Discussion pages via "supplementation pages" feature[1]. My
recollection back when we moved to Moin (from kwiki I think?) was that
it was decided by the responsible admins to instead encourage using
debian-www for wiki-related discussion, and to not use Discussion pages.

That was a long time ago and I think it's fair to say that debian-www is
probably not the ideal place for wiki content discussions after all. It
might be worth revisiting the decision, although this (-user) isn't the
place to suggest that. (I might suggest it in the proper place if I have
time next week).
