According to Wikipedia, Mediawiki is a CMS:


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_content_management_systems

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:MediaWiki#CMS


( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Content_management_system ):

"A content management system (CMS) is a computer software system for 
organizing and facilitating collaborative creation of documents and 
other content. A content management system is frequently a web 
application used for managing websites and web content,"



Could anyone who feels with conviction that Mediawiki is NOT a CMS, 
please explain.



Thanks,
Roger
