The Trac Wiki and the GitLab Migration

Ara Adkins
Hey All,

I’ve been doing a decent amount of thinking about the GitLab migration and realised that I’d not seen any discussion of what we plan to do with all the information in the Trac Wiki. If there has been some and I’ve missed it I apologise.

In essence, I’m wondering what the current plan is! Will we leave it in place, or so we plan to move the content to a wiki on GitLab?

Best.

The original announcement said wiki migration still has a few hitches to be ironed out, but is generally looking good.

The wiki content will also be moved to GitLab. However, the
content in the Wiki tends to use significantly richer markup which has
posed trouble for the markup conversion. The conversion will almost
certainly require a bit of manual cleanup; we are currently trying to
workout the right compromise between manual post-processing and fixing
the Trac parser.

Cheers,

- Ben

Brilliant. Thanks Ben and Brandon for the quick responses.

Ben, if there’s any way I can help wit that migration, even to the point of manual cleanup, do let me know!
