Why does this wiki exist, who is running it, and why isn't data from wiki.debian.net, which is until now used by the debian developers, migrated here? As far as I know the guy running wiki.debian.net wrote somewhere that he'd be happy to give wiki.debian.net's data away to the debian people... (asks and says HenningSprang)
To the best of my understanding, the problem is that it isn't trivial to migrate kwiki to moin moin -- but if someone comes up with a data.tar.gz or whatever it takes to unpack in wiki.debian.org containing the wiki.debian.net data, I think it isn't a problem to do the migration. Anyway, about who runs the wiki, this wiki is run by DSA, Debian's System Administration. ["Jeroen"]
All you had to do was ask. http://wiki.debian.net/~ivey/debwiki.tgz should work. Let me know if you need anything else. As an aside: even though I have been asking the DSA to take over the Wiki for over a year...it would have been nice if someone had let me know it was happening. -- MichaelIvey (PS: Could someone keep us posted on the MigrationStatus)
I (?DavidRichardBell) am now starting to restructure this wiki and integrate the content from my own resources, and wiki.debian.net
