I can commit to doing an in-place MediaWiki upgrade over the next six
weeks, but, read on...

I think there would be a lot of benefit to archiving the current wiki and
starting fresh, but there's definitely some content that should not only be
brought over to a new platform, but have URL redirects put in place. I'm
