Status of wiki.debian.net migration


  • Mon 5 Sep 2005, 17:41:14 UTC: [http://wiki.wolffelaar.nl wiki.wolffelaar.nl] is the output of my [http://www.wolffelaar.nl/~jeroen/kwiki2moinmoin/ current version of conversion scripts] -- not much in the way of markup conversion, but revision history etc is there. Help with markup conversion badly wanted (in perl, please) --["Jeroen"]

  • [http://wiki.debian.net wiki.debian.net] is read-only (Update: as long as conversion isn't ready yet to be done, it's read/write again), and a dump of the database is [http://people.debian.org/~ivey available]

  • A script to convert the RCS files into moin moin revision files is fairly easy and will be done by ["Jeroen"].
  • A script to convert the markup from kwiki to moin moin needs to be written, see below.
  • establish copyright/licencing situation for old and new sites (?WikiLicencingTerms) (sorry)


  • Convert markup (see below).
  • Test [http://wiki.wolffelaar.nl wiki.wolffelaar.nl] to spot problems in the conversion scripts by ["Jeroen"].

Pages That Have Sucked in the Past

Convert markup

Any snippets appreciated. Todo:

  • This page looks totally ruined by the conversion: http://wiki.wolffelaar.nl/DebConf5TodoConferenceManagementSystem

    • The version of the script currently below fixes this page (although, WIKINAME may be overspecified below... I don't know what the actual regex is for automated links in the original wiki...)
  • AbcDef must become the proper moin moin equivalent

    • It may be easier to just set bang_meta to true, since the methods of escaping these really suck in MoinMoin.

  • Some links don't convert correctly (bottom of http://wiki.wolffelaar.nl/DebConf6Meetings)

    • This can be fixed via something like:

$data =~ s/\[([^]]+) ([^] ]+)\]/[wiki:Self:$2 $1]/g;
  • Misc other markup issues

For testing the markup conversion, the following snippit may be useful: Just perl foo < bleh_test|less it.


my $WIKINAME = '[A-Z]\w*[A-Z]\w*';

while (<>) {

  • my $data = $_;

    #$data =~ s/_(\w)/$1/g; #$data =~ s/(\w)_/$1/g;

# asuffield

  • #$data =~ s/\b_(\S+)_\b/$1/g;

# HelmutG

  • $data =~ s/^(\*+) /' '." " x (length($1)-1) . "* "/ge; $data =~ s/^(0+) /' '." " x (length($1)-1) . "1 "/ge; $data =~ s/(_[^_]+_)/_$1_/g;

    $data =~ s{\[([^\]]+?)\s+($WIKINAME)\]}{qq([wiki:?$2 $1])}xeg; $data =~ s!\[([]]+) ([a-z]{3,5}://[ ]+) ([^]]+)\]!\[$2 $1 $3\]!g;

# jvw

  • $data =~ s/\*([^\n]+)\*/$1/g; #$data =~ s/^ / \* /gm; $data =~ s/\[([a-zA-Z0-9]+)\]/["$1"]/g; #$data =~ s/\[([]]+) ([] ]+)\]/[wiki:?$2 $1]/g; $data =~ s/\[=([^]]+)\]/$1/g; $data =~ s/!([A-Z]a-z]+)/$1/g; $data =~ s/(=+) (.*[=])(\n)$/$1 $2 $1$3/gm; $data =~ s/\|/\|\|/g; print $data;

  • }
