A Comparison of Optimistic Approaches to Collaborative Editing of Wiki Pages

Abstract : Wikis, a popular tool for sharing knowledge, are basically collaborative editing systems. However, existing wiki systems offer limited support for co-operative authoring, and they do not scale well, because they are based on a centralised architecture. This paper compares the well-known centralised MediaWiki system with several peer-to-peer approaches to editing of wiki pages: an operational transformation approach (MOT2), a commutativity-oriented approach (WOOTO) and a conflict resolution approach (ACF). We evaluate and compare them, according to a number of qualitative and quantitative metrics.
