I'm not sure if I made it clear but I do not use Confluence as a web
server for customers. It's strictly for internal collaboration and I
export PDF and web help.

The way Confluence and its plugins are priced makes it less attractive
as a web server than an authoring tool. You can get Confluence and the
four commericial plugins I use for $40 for ten users. Bump that up to
25 and it's $1800. 50 is $3600 and 100 is $6000. Unlimited is $40000.

It would be a lot more appealing for publishing if they used
MindTouch's model and didn't charge for users who have permission only
to read and comment. It makes no sense to me to tie the price for
Scroll DocBook Exporter to how many Confluence users we have, since
only internal tech writers will ever use it.
