Wiki migration

This page holds information about the wiki upgrades, such as the status of the various tasks, problems and a TODO list. It should be used by everyone that is involved in the migration of the current wiki.


A new wiki has been chosen (MediaWiki). This was done over a long period but the primary reasons are to ensure that the wiki can scale to the size that Fedora needs it to.

The migration script (;a=tree;f=scripts/moin2mw)

The ticket:

The test site:


There are a number of issues that need to be fixed but many of them cannot be fixed and will have to be dealt with.

  • User pages need to be moved from /wiki/WikiName to /wiki/User:username
  • OpenID integration needs to be completed (Which will also involve people logging in with username instead of WikiName
  • Migration script needs work
  • Docbook for docs team
  • Attachments - All attachments in Moin are associated with a page. In Mediawiki they are all under /attachments/. Mapping between the two needs to be figured out.
  • ACL's - The ACL system is different in Mediawiki. This needs to be tested and converted.
