Obviously, it will take an infinite length of time, because no-one
has asked Francesco Poli to do that work. Also, I wouldn't blame
anyone not taking up the work if they don't like pseudo-wikis like
mediawiki with its non-wiki syntax and complicated interface.

Is this debian-legal or debian-grandstanding? :-/

Less than a thousand pages have no obvious identifiable copyright
holders so it looks possible to automate the relicensing process a
bit. Would it be as easy to do if content is migrated for now?
