Draft/Publish deals with regular wiki pages, created by you and your 
community. Drafts and published versions are both stored in wiki.d . 
It's a way of editing a page without the world seeing the intermediate 
versions. (If you're like me, you save a draft several times while 
editing it, then let it sit a day ((or ten)) before it's ready to be 
formalized.) I think it also allows for others to see it, if they know 
how to reach it. IIRC, the URL is group.page-draft , but I could be 
wrong. Draft is a relatively recent feature. Previously, there was just 
Save, and if you wanted a copy to play with for a while you had to 
create it yourself.

wikilib.d is for the pages that come with pmwiki. This includes the 
first sidebar, the search page, the edit form -- that sort of thing. If 
you customize them, the new version is stored in wiki.d . The program 
looks in wiki.d first. If you delete the wiki.d version, it reverts to 
the wikilib.d one.
