Yes, the software is available from UseMod.com.  This is "UseMod Wiki"

Locally, we are running a slighly hacked version, but the changes are
probably only of local interest.

Soon, we will probably be switching to a home-grown PHP
wiki... Magnus's software.  "Soon" might mean this month, but more
likely means "in the next few months", I think.

If there's something special about our hacked version that you want,
we can give it to you.
