Hi Casey,

I'm very busy these days, but can you give me until the end of the
week to see how far the migration can go? A flat import based on the
list of pages (http://www.perlfoundation.org/data/workspaces/perl5/pages)
is certainly feasible.

I'm CC-ing the mailing list in case someone else wants to pitch in.
Casey is looking into migrating The Perl Foundation wiki to a better
platform, and MojoMojo might be an excellent candidate.

Hi Dan,
It has been a while since I've heard from you. I wanted to let you know what
my plans are for the TPF hosted wikis.
If the mojomojo team doesn't have time or interest in migrating the wikis to
your platform I'm going to see if Socialtext is still interested in hosting
the wikis on their side. I'll be contacting them later in the week.
Thanks for the support Dan, and Marcus!

Hi Dan,
Sorry for the delay. This email was lost in my inbox. Slurping is a
idea for a Socialtext wiki, especially since there is no "database."
Socialtext did a great job on their REST API. For example:
I'd be very interested in making this move quickly.

Hi Casey,

We've been talking on #mojomojo about automating imports from other
wikis and two approaches emerged:

1. "Slurping" the existing wiki by navigating its pages in "source" or
"edit" mode. This would not require a database export but may miss
pages that aren't linked from anywhere. History import may also be a
problem if there is not a "source" view (not the case for SocialText,
which does have a source view).
2. Requesting a database export from the administrator of the wiki.

We'd like to take on slurping because it involves less headache for
the migrating user, so there'd be no action on your part so far.
However, should slurping prove to be a pain, could you supply us with
a database dump of the Perl Foundation wiki?
