Thanks. Just looking through the top pages, I'm not seeing very
complex pages.  I know there are highly customized parts, that might
not convert easily to moin moin or CWiki.  But I don't see it in the
top pages.

Or am I missing something?

It is hard to interpret the absolute number without knowing the time
scale we're measuring.  10,000 hits in 5 years is not so impressive.
In one day, it is.

In any case, we have some very popular pages.  But it drops rather
quickly.  After 25 pages we're down a factor of 10.  This is as you
would expect.

The interesting thing (and something that is hard to look at in detail
without web analytics) is how people are getting to these pages, and

For example, the Dictionaries page is a good compilation of open
source dictionaries for ispell/hunspell.  As such, it is of interest
to several OSS programs.  So that page is linked to from:




Even commercial products like Altova:

So we have a page here that is important beyond users of OpenOffice.
We should try to preserve both the content and the URL
