Migration steps (MediaWiki upgrade or another engine) could be:
- provide an archived version of the current wiki (eg. at
- Upgrade (or migrate, there are migration scripts to dokuwiki [1]) to
not lose the history, authors, etc.
- Remove all the pages we don't want because obsolete or duplicate (we
would keep content like the SQL and jQuery pages, even if not
up-to-date and need work)
- Pages that have been deleted would be automatically re-created on
the new wiki with a link pointing to the archived page [2] (seems
relatively easy to script)
- In case of a new we may need to add a redirect at the webserver level
- Clean and improve everything :)
