It was a README.migration, which I thought was provided by Moin.

Yes, on that, don't you think it's a bug if I explicitly tell the moin command
--config-dir=foo and it picks up config on bar? What's the point of being
explicit then?

I'll take a look. The main issue was the plethora of old migration scripts,
and it was difficult to sort through them and figure out which ones I needed
to run. And, receiving errors on my first attempt instead of something
helpful. It should not be difficult to catch the KeyError and tell the user
that they need to run that particular migration script first.
