ikiwiki is a free and open-source wiki application, designed by Joey Hess. It is licensed under the terms of the GNU General Public License, version 2 or later. ikiwiki is written in Perl, although external plugins can be implemented in any language.
In the simplest case, it can function as an off-line static web site generator (possibly still allowing different users to submit changes through VCS; this method is sometimes referred to as wiki compiler), but it can use CGI to function as a normal web-interfaced wiki as well. Login via OpenID is supported.
Use as a (possibly-distributed) bug tracker
Although wikis and bug tracking systems are conventionally viewed as distinct types of software, Ikiwiki can also be used as a (possibly-distributed) bug tracking system; however, "Ikiwiki has little structured data except for page filenames and tags," so its query functionality is not as advanced or as user-friendly as some other, centralised bug trackers such as Bugzilla.
