Pedro, just a quick clarification,

My understanding is that Infra doesn't do content conversions of the kind we are talking about.

It is all volunteer work and it is up to the PPMC to resource such things. Infrastructure
provided the gear and the platform/stack. 

Oh, and I read Alexandro's question differently.  When he asked "how will you," I answered
with "how would I".  I didn't take the question as one for the PPMC.  Sorry.

My response is in the context "Were it up to me, I would ..." and "How I see it is ...".

Sorry about that.

 - Dennis

Please hold your horses. Terry is not here, he is in his
way to Greece, and we are just exploring the few options
that are left.

Conversion from MW to confluence may be painful for
us but hopefully would be much easier for infra@.
(they haven't said anything about it yet but I am
pretty sure exploring this will take time).

Updating MW (which must be done for many good reasons,
including security) would seem more logical but still
has pain for both us and infra@.
