Which 404's at the moment. But anyway, what's needed is someone who uses some
perl (or whatever) magic on that tarball, to get moin-compatible data/pages
files that can be unpacked in the wiki.debian.org installation by a DSA
member. I wonder whether with moin moin, there needs to happen anything else
too, for example (index files rebuild or something?). Unfortunately I'm
familiar with kwiki nor moin moin.
And someone needs to come up with a way to deal with conflicts, though the
best way would be to simply prevent them from happening -- i.e., do not create
pages that already exist on wiki.debian.net.
Note: I wasn't and still am not involved in any way with wiki.debian.org/
wiki.debian.net, but I simply would really like to see this transition happen
smoothly, because the longer it takes, the harder it will get.
