Subject Re: target for 2.9.1 release?

"I'd rather use the time to contribute to JSPWiki" ?  Rest assured, 
there is no greater service you can perform right now than getting rid 
of yesterday's lard from so we don't need to look 
at/discuss/ooh and aah it and can more clearly grasp what we need to 
move over.  Especially since you are most knowledgable about what is no 
longer important.  The first action on "How do we move 500K of text 
over?" is "How do we make it 200K of text?"  It's harder to focus on the 
say 6 issues that matter if they must always be interspersed with 15 
items nobody cares about.

I think there are two more changes needed for that site:

1.) The top of main should stress that the project has now 
moved to Apache and that this is just a legacy site for older versions 
of that will be periodically reduced as the information 
becomes obsolete or moves to regular Apache sites. needs to 
stop acting like it's the main website for JSPWiki.

2.) Accordingly with #1 above, remove the following left-side menu items 
(and their associated pages) that are either obsolete or incorrectly 
give the appearance of being a live site--links in the 
latter category have already been taken over by the Apache JSPWiki 
site:  News, Recent Changes, User Preferences, About, IRC Channel, 
Mailing List, Weblog, Getting Involved, JSP Wiki Testers, Open bugs, 
Report new bug, New Ideas?, What's up?, SandBox, Dmoz, Google, Yahoo.  
If there's any information on those pages that you would like to see 
moved first to the Apache site (I don't see any myself), we can keep 
those particular links until we move the data over.  But for links for 
which you're in agreement with me are obsolete, it would be great to 
delete them now so they don't continue to serve as distractions.

any rate,, as you describe it, is an orphan work and probably not usable
for us.  Maybe we should just shut it down.  If we create our own Wiki (with everything henceforth
Apache licensed), within a few to several months it will probably repopulate with the most
useful material that was on the old site anyway.  I would suspect pure facts
 *can* be transferred to the new site as facts aren't copyrightable.

and probably many others.  I think the main thing though is that the site can't act like it's
the Apache product. With the two sites above shut down or moved to Apache, you might just
be able to release the domain instead of giving it to Apache.

paperwork passing the name to ASF, or whether it was needed in the first place, but I think
the consensus was that it's better that ASF takes control of - even if it's nothing
but a redirect to or or something.

 But we should have our system documentation and probably a Wiki to be *on* the Apache site,
even if it's duplicated by third party sites like  I would like to get the Infra
folks to host a JSPWiki site (we are *sooo* much faster than Confluence Wikis, and we could
probably get other Apache projects to adopt us) but if they won't do that, and our only options
are (1) hosting our documentation off Apache using JSPWiki or (2) hosting our documentation
on Apache w/Confluence Wiki, perhaps (2), however unpleasant, should be evaluated.
