Hi Thomas,

Yes, this was part of a test migration, but I will soon do the final
migration (probably sometime during next week). I didn't know these
user links (which is what I thought they were) would be sending emails
:-). Sorry for the noise.

My intention was to convert links to the "user page" in moinmoin
(which is typically something like JohanCorveleyn, or ThomasAkesson)
into a link to the user profile in Confluence (which would be
[~jcorvel] in confluence wiki syntax [1]). I didn't realize that this
is not only a link to your user page, but also a "mention", which
generates a notification.

In the case of those two links (mentions) to your name, I only "fixed"
that in the latest test. Because apparently in MoinMoin your username
is "Thomas Åkesson", while that page contains literal ThomasAkesson
(!= username). So my first iterations didn't pick that up, and I
thought the intention was that this should have been a link to your
user in MoinMoin too, so I converted that (more or less manually) into
a [~xxx] link for Confluence. Perhaps that was not what you originally
intended? I can simply remove that manual mapping for you (when I do
my next iteration / final migration), no problem.

For the migration I'm using the so called "Universal Wiki Converter"
[2]. I've had to tweak it a lot though, to get good results. But I'm
almost there now (just a couple of final problems). I intend to share
my tweaks / experiences with ASF infra (or the general public for that
matter), so other projects can benefit from this too if they want to
migrate from MoinMoin to Confluence.
