[IPython-dev] Migrating wiki again

A few days ago, @dttocs on Github tipped us off that our Wiki was serving
spam about prescription drugs. I cleaned it up and upgraded Mediawiki, but
it's already reappeared, so evidently the loophole that was used before is
still open. This isn't just the regular spam pages, which are mostly under
control; something is able to modify .htaccess .

I'm not a sysadmin, and we've got better uses for our time than battling
malware. Unless someone feels confident they can maintain it securely, I
suggest that we abandon our experiment with Mediawiki, and start moving the
content to a Github wiki.
