I think the description in
http://docs.scipy.org/scipyorg/Front%20Page/ is relatively clear

"scipy.org editor
This is an editor for a tentative new version of the scipy.org site,
which currently runs on Moinmoin. We are experimenting on moving the
most important parts to Sphinx."

maybe point to the other two editors in the Warning, or tell
contributors that there are 3 editors now.
