Migrating our wiki

From: Johan Corveleyn <jcorvel_at_gmail.com>

I can't take it any longer ... our (MoinMoin) wiki [1] is so slow that
it's almost unusable. For reading / browsing it's still more or less
okay, but for editing it's not. It takes almost 5 minutes for me to
save any change.

We're not the first to run into this: in INFRA-12283 [2] a similar
complaint was reported for the Hadoop wiki. The recommendation seems
to be to move to the confluence wiki, which is recommended and
supported by infra [3].

So I'd like us to move to cwiki.apache.org. I can spend some time on
this (but help is of course very welcome, especially reviewing /
re-markup'ing migrated pages (different wiki syntax)).

I thought I'd simply start with asking infra for a new confluence
space, and then start migrating our existing pages one by one (first
importing them as-is, and converting them to the new wiki syntax in a
second pass). Unless someone knows of a (semi-)automatic way to
migrate / convert to the new wiki syntax?

Thoughts?

[2] https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-12283 (Really slow to
save changes to wiki.apache.org)
[3] https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-12342 (Request for
Information: Wiki Recommendations?)
