I know practically nothing about wikis. I only inserted some some content
from time to time. So I don't really have an opinion about which wiki
replacement to choose.
I too was surprised by the email about the discontinuation. I think I had
seen it mentioned on SF somewhere, but I don't recall an earlier email
like we had for the forum and even that is still not migrated.
If the Trac tracker system isn't worse than what we use now on SF I don't
mind switching, though we probably need help from SF for that too. Trac
also seems to use subversion for version control, so that doesn't change I
Borut, if possible, would you please take this upon yourself and submit
the SF-tracker issue for migration as mentioned in the email from SF?
Let's start with using the wiki and ask if they plan to help with
migrating the tracker system too. I hope (assume) they can still perform
the wiki migration from the archive.
