 * Mon 5 Sep 2005, 17:41:14 UTC: [http://wiki.wolffelaar.nl wiki.wolffelaar.nl] is the output of my 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"]

 * Remove old kwiki help pages, like ["TextFormattingRules"]] and switch to ["HelpOnEditing"] .
 * Kwiki had switched URL formats and supported through some hack (probably URL rewrite) old links in the form index.cgi?Foo (example : http://wiki.debian.net/index.cgi?DebianInstallerFAQ). This was a switch recent enough so that we still find links with such a form in doc and should support them IMO. Currently these bring to a non-existing index.cgi page. -- FilipusKlutiero
 * The new wiki supports links such as w.d.o/?Foo to bring to Foo. However there's no actual redirection. This seems to highlight a small Moin bug. If you access a page this way, and try deleting the page, you'll be asked for confirmation on the homepage for your language. I wasn't careful or thought that was just a bug and confirmed the deletion. The French PageD'Accueil was deleted (but still exists, since it was regenerated automatically). Hopefully that doesn't happen to the english homepage until it's locked. -- FilipusKlutiero
 * The german equivalent of "FrontPage" is still the default page. Probably the same thing applies for other languages. We should get rid of such "bogus" translations! -- ErichSchubert
   * As I mentionned in ["FrontPage/Discussion"], I think we should use MoinMoin's official names for translated front pages. For example, FrontPageFrench duplicates much of ["PageD'Accueil"] (the equivalent of FrontPage in french). -- TheAnarcat [[DateTime(2006-05-15T02:18:10Z)]]
 * Deal with WikiLicencingTerms by at least proposing a license for new content. -- FilipusKlutiero
Line 9: Line 12:
 * [http://wiki.debian.net wiki.debian.net] is read-only, and a dump of the database is 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.

Any snippets appreciated. Todo:

 * Headers have now also a trailing set of ='s
 * Bold/italic/underscore are different
 * wikiwords that are not {{{StudlyCaps}}} are now {{{["Likethis"]}}} instead of {{{[Likethis]}}}
 * All the rest

=== This page ===
Jeroen, it would be useful to clarify the following points :
"a dump of the database is available"...where?

Also, where's the script you used to convert markup? Perhaps a page should be created about that script alone.
Sat Oct 8 00:03:05 UTC 2005: wiki.debian.net content is converted over, wiki.debian.net is now permanently read-only, and will soon start to http-redirect people to here --["Jeroen"]
 * Some pages were not converted perfectly, those should be manually fixed.
 * Some pages existed on both wiki.debian.org and wiki.debian.net, I (["Jeroen"]) needed to do something with that. I documented it all, and you can double-check me, and correct where needed:
  * Some page's history got merged, the .org version becoming the last (current) version. You might want to check the last wiki.debian.net version to see if it has info that was dropped in the first wiki.debian.org version. List and raw data: http://spohr.debian.org/~jeroen/wiki/merged/
  * Some pages were seeming manually copied from wiki.debian.net, I deleted the wiki.debian.org version and put down the wiki.debian.net version with history. The .org version might have had markup fixes that are now gone again. You might want to check that. List and raw data: http://spohr.debian.org/~jeroen/wiki/replaced/
  * Some pages had seeming a much better version history in the .org version, and the .net version was a completely seperate branch, I deleted the wiki.debian.net version, but there still might be good info over there that should be merged into the .org version. List and raw data: http://spohr.debian.org/~jeroen/wiki/skipped-backmergemanually/
  * Quite a number of users had on both wiki's a user page, I dropped the .net version for all of them. List and raw data: http://spohr.debian.org/~jeroen/wiki/skipped-personal/
