I took a torch to it. :-) Here are some definitions:
Wiki - A wiki is a site with a URL and it's own wiki.d/ directory.
Each wiki in a farm is individually configurable using a
WikiFarm - Two or more wikis that share an installed copy of PmWiki.
Analgous to the computing phrase "server farm".
Farm-wide - Something available to or affecting all wikis in the farm.
Typically this means modifying the farmconfig.php file or the
contents of the farm's cookbook/ or pub/ directories.
Local - Something available to or affecting a specific wiki.
Typically this means modifying the wiki's local/config.php file or the
contents of the wiki's cookbook/ or pub/ directories.
Home wiki - A wiki in a farm that's located in the same directory as
the PmWiki software and therefore shares the farm's cookbook/ and pub/
directories. If you start with a stand-alone installation and add a
wiki, the original wiki becomes a home wiki.
