Given your expression of interest, I have restarted my work on JSP->Moin 

If you read no further - read this: Please review the wiki at I consider this to be a valid final pass at the 
wiki conversion (on data that is a few weeks out of date). I believe 
that all the remaining conversion issues should be handled manually, if 
you disagree, please let me know.

No, to move on:

The one outstanding problem was that the script was converting things 
that appeared in {{{ }}}, which it shouldn't. For example, on the 
LoadBalancingWithModProxy, there is a [P,L] which was getting converted 
to [:P,L]. When I tried using this within Apache, it took me quite some 
time to work out that the problem was with my Wiki conversion rather 
than with Apache! Anyway, I believe I have fixed this already, and will 
have uploaded a new version by the time you read this.

The only remaining thing I _could_ do is where Moin detects CamelCase 
and makes links of it. These can be worked around with !CamelCase, which 
stops it becoming a link. But that one we can do manually when we see 
it. The previous {{{}}} problem would have been too esoteric to fix 
manually and thus needed to be done within the script.

The other thing that was unresolved, but now works, is admin access to 
the wiki. After I do a small change, anyone within the cocoon group on 
Minotaur (all Cocoon committers) can add a password so that they can 
have administrative access to the wiki (e.g. deleting/reverting pages, 
etc, I believe).

So, I need people to review the site at, and to 
point out anything that is unacceptable. If no objections, we should 
make the JSP wiki read only, run the conversion script, upload the new 
content to The new wiki will then be live. After that 
(as Steven has previously suggested), some clever mod_rewrite rules on could redirect people to the new Wiki. The below 
would do _most_ of it:

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI}  Wiki.jsp
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ?page=(abc)
RewriteRule .* [R=301]

So, please review the new wiki conversion, and hopefully we can switch 
pretty soon. If I hear nothing, I'll start a vote in a few days.

Regards, Upayavira
