    According to SourceForge, hosted apps, which is used for the GpsMid wiki, is going away. The date was set to September but now it's said it's postponed.

    I guess we should look for alternatives to host the wiki.

    That's bad, also because GpsMid has hardcoded the urls in the Help menu.

    Hmm - good point, must reconsider the urls for 0.8.

    Would be a shame to leave them out, though. A bit of a hack would be to use tinyurl or equivalent. Maybe instead use an URL at the GpsMid source forget hosting for the help pages, and do a redirect there. But can we do that, perhaps not?

    Probably can't rely on javascript and maybe not even meta http-equiv redirects due to J2ME devices.

    A reminder and update - Mediawiki is going away 2012Q4 according to current timing, and there might be a migration path (though requires switching to new SF, Allura):

    "There is a work in progress to enable migration of MediaWiki content to the new wiki. Stay tuned."

    "The Hosted Apps platform will be retired on 2012-09-01 2012Q4, approximately one month after migration docs and platform upgrades are complete."
