We do not have (as I have said to you many times :) that problem about over-writing wiki page history with successive imports. When pages are imported to the same location to the wiki import just updates those pages. Overwriting community changes may be a problem if changes are not reviewed and taken to the official documents before next import round. But even in that situation (as mistakes will happen) changes are not lost as they are save in wiki page history.

Let me know how import works when it is done as it should be done...
