I see no difference in my approach (import directly from MadiaWiki format to the maemo.org) and your approach (import somewhere else, export, import to maemo.org).

If you want to see how documents look like before importing to the maemo.org you can always import first to the local MediaWiki instance.

Important is that you do NOT do this export/import round from that local MediaWiki but import documents directly to the maemo.org using our tools/scripts.

Maemo Info Center has the latest versions of all documents we have published there (http://library.maemodocs.nokia.com/documents). Maemo.org wiki now has older versions (PreFinal versions from here (http://tablets-dev.nokia.com/maemo-dev-env-downloads.php) that need to be updated to be in sync with Info Center.

When you are ready to update maemo.rog wiki I can send to you prebuilt MediaWiki import versions of all documents so that you do not need to install our doc infra to generate those. Just send me an email requesting it.
