This page discusses the migration of documentation pages from the old MediaWiki platform to the Atlassian Confluence wiki.
Please follow these steps, especially during a docs sprint, to copy pages from the old MediaWiki to Confluence:
We are most interested in copying all the pages from the old wiki as quickly as possible. The editing, formatting, and making pretty can be done later once all the pages have been migrated.
We are starting the migration from MediaWiki to Confluence Wiki, we’ve tried various ways to import the data we have now and it didn’t end well at all. We would have to do more work to fix all those broken links. So we are fleshing out the new layout and migrating the data little by little from MediaWiki to Confluence. This is the time for everyone who can’t contribute code to step up and give back to the community.
If you want an account to the sandbox area to assist in migrating the documentation we have, formatting it and reading thru it as we migrate it over from MediaWiki, please sign up for an account at https://auth.freeswitch.org then email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the confluence editors group. We need as many hands as possible working on this to get it done quickly. Once the migration is complete we’ll go thru and fill in docs on areas that are currently either missing or not well thought out. The new wiki will not copy the layout exactly as it appears on MediaWiki, but Confluence provides a more well thought-out table of contents.
