I see you closed INFRA-3917.

Keep in mind that there appear to be others willing to struggle with Confluence migration

A problem to consider in contingency planning: What it means to lock down the current wiki
during conversion.  And is the MW kept running for read-only viewing while conversion takes
place, either bit by bit or wholesale?   Parallel live operation does not appear practical.

I think Confluence migration remains as a potentially-necessary Plan B or a potential following
Plan A if needed for the long run.  The analysis TerryE provided suggests that it won't be
easy whenever it is done.  I'm thinking it should not be done first if MW can be operated
in the short term.

OK, I am afraid it simply impossible then: I don't have
the resources nor it would be easy for me to get all the
MediaWiki content.

If someone from infra@ is listening, please just
close INFRA-3917.
