Those updates have been posted to the infrastructure list.

I'm working on the recovery together with Reimar Bauer and
Thomas Waldmann (both MoinMoin devs).

Here's an update I sent to the board list yesterday:

I've managed to extract all of the data available archive.org for
the public wikis (the latest version of each page). I'm now
looking into merging this data with the more recent, but incomplete
data from Yahoo/Bing archives. The Google archive could not be used
due to a surge protection they have on their site.

Once this is merged, Reimar will put the HTML files through
a converter that generates wiki markup.

However, before setting up the new VM with the recovered data,
we want to have a closer look at the VM image file Noah made available

and even the most recently updated ones from the board
agenda page.

Esp. for the PSF wiki this data is important, since we don't
have any other cache or archive to check.

If we're successful, we can then create a dump of all the recovered
data in wiki format to be loaded back into the archive from
end of June 2012.
