I don't think it is possible. Ikiwiki uses its own format (markdown)
before it renders to HTML. It /might/ be possible to write an
exporter, but it seems to me that it would be easier to just scrape
http://dpn.debian.net/issues/200802/ and convert it. Is there much
conversion required anyway? All you need is in the <div
id="content"> div, and it's fairly trivial HTML.

I think this would be doable, either with explicit workflow
extensions, or with the linguas or po plugins:

I don't have any experience with them (yet), and little time, but
I'd be happy to give access to the ikiwiki instance to people who
want to play around with it. Drop me your SSH identity in a signed
email and you're in.

Surely it can be run on alioth, I am not sure about the password
integration though, but I asked some people.
