[maemo-developers] [maemo-developers] important message for maemo.org wiki users

Dear maemo.org wiki Editors and Readers,

We are in the middle of converting the old documentation to our new Midgard
Content Management System. As part of this activity we have created a tool that
will import the existing wiki pages to Midgard's Markdown [1] syntax. The
documents written by you will be integrated with the other maemo documentation.
So, how-tos will go to a how-to section, tutorials will be placed among
"official" maemo tutorials. We try to unite the community by integrating your
contributions properly.

In order to retain editing rights you must have a valid garage account.
Unfortunately we are not able to transfer your wiki accounts to garage, but we
will send a reminder to every wiki editors separately. If you have a garage
account already then you don't need to take any action.

I plan to import the current wiki pages during the coming weekend and beginning
of next week. This process can be followed at test.maemo.org. I will inform you
once the import has finished.

We would like to encourage all of you to start using the new pages as soon as
the wiki import has been completed. However the current maemo wiki will be
available for some time, but we will do __no more__ automated page conversion.
We could be radical and disable editing of the "old" pages, but this may cause
too much harm. We try to add a note to each old page about the transition
though. So please stay tuned.
