I'm happy to announce some changes to the GNU Mailman infrastructure that has been a long time coming. For many years, our wiki hosted at wiki.list.org has been running on a donated instance of Atlassian Confluence. We are extremely grateful to both Atlassian and the hosting provider Contegix for their support over the years.
However, Confluence is not free software and because Mailman is a GNU project, it is incumbent on the project to utilize free software throughout our infrastructure. Thus I am here to announce the imminent switch of our wiki to a new Moin server.
Huge, huge thanks go to Paul Boddie for the incredible amount of work he's put into the conversion process. Paul has been able to import most if not all of the content, along with most of the account names, into the new wiki. Because of the difference in organizing principles between Confluence and Moin, some post conversion gardening will be needed, and eventually we'd like to improve the style, but the conversion has really been done masterfully.
Of course, passwords have not been imported into the new wiki, so if you were an approved author of the old wiki, you'll need to do a password reset to gain control of your new wiki account. However, the group permissions have been imported, so if you were able to edit the old wiki, you should be able to edit the new wiki. As always, contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you need assistance.
We're doing the last few fiddly bits of the conversion, so you may see some down time while things fall into place. We still need to set up the SSL certificates and twiddle the DNS, so please be aware of this. I'll make another announcement when everything should be settled.
In the meantime, I've disabled write permissions to the Confluence wiki.
Huge thanks also go out to the Python Software Foundation and the PSF infrastructure team for donating the resources that the new wiki is running on. Thanks too to the other Mailpersons who have helped review the moin conversion process.
