Just some news on the darcs-gitit migration.
Here are some issues related to this. I think the blockers have been
fixed, so I'm going to work out how to lock the Moin DB for writing now.
- Converting the moin history to darcs.
Done 2009-04-13. Thanks, Trent!
- Not viewable in some configurations. (the happstack compression
Fixed 2009-04-15 by upgrading to darcs version of happstack
and rebuilding gitit as needed
In progress. I'm hoping we can help fix some of the issues by
implementing a --max-count switch during the hackathon and maybe even
getting the filecache work into darcs.
- Syntax still in MoinMoin (whereas we are treating it as RST).
Conversion in progress. I have pushed a patch which performs
an initial conversion of just the front page to RST format.
- Moin database has about 1 month of changes to merge in, probably
by hand. In progress
- Our wiki software is named *git*it even though it's using a darcs
repository. This may be bad marketing, so we'll have to work out
a gentle way to dealing with this, probably by reminding folks in
the template to darcs get the repo
- LICENSING: since we're thinking about it, how about adopting a
formal license for all new content? The haskell.org wiki uses
a "simple permissive license" which is the closest practical
thing to public domain they could get:
