Do you know what syntax it supports? If you can get a page listing the 
syntax, I'd suggest comparing it against the confluence one, the moinmoin 
one, and markdown

This will need to be switched to SVN, with an read only git repo available 
too. No reason why people can't use the hg svn integration to keep working 
on hg locally if they want to, but SVN will need to be the canonical store

I'd suggest we try to convert the bulk of these into regular markdown 
pages. Switching the wiki syntax should be pretty easy.

Wikis are best for things that non committers may wish to help with, for 
the official docs it's probably best to put it in the CMS

OK, I'd suggest we try to close it to make things easier

Do you know which version of bugzilla, and if a dump is possible?

That would make sense to me. If we find a lot of traffic on the user list, 
we can always split it later into the sub-projects. To start with it's 
probably best to have one list to help build the community

A small perl script can usually help with translating the syntax :)
