wikiold frozen, work on wikinew begins, early-import happening right now

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki ==> /wikiold on 27 May == 'wikiold' == MoinMoin
http://fedoraproject.org/wikinew ==> /wiki on 27 May == 'wikinew' == MediaWiki

The content from MoinMoin (wikiold) is being early-imported to MediaWiki
(wikinew).  That is happening right now and should be ready in N hours.
N == when it's ready.  I'll send another announcement at that time.

This content is going to be imported *again* on 27 May, to capture any
changes made to wikiold.  The details of that are being worked on, but
the goal is to have content fidelity.  Your help is needed in
maintaining fidelity.

Here is what you should do:

1. Don't edit either wiki until you hear the early-import is done

2. If your content can wait until 27 May (Tuesday) for the public to
view it at fp.org/wiki, then do the work in wikinew and it goes live
with the final-import on Tuesday.  This is a chance to fix pages in
wikinew that are not going to stay steady.

        ** DO NOT edit the page in both wikiold and wikinew. **
        ** Pick one and stick with it through the migration. **

3. If your content cannot wait until Tuesday and *must* be visible to
the public at fp.org/wiki between now and Tuesday, do the work in
wikiold.  On Tuesday, it is final-imported into wikinew.  You then want
to check the content post-import as you would any other pages.

Questions?  #fedora-docs on irc.freenode.net is where the Wiki Gardeners
hang out.  Time to start pruning and trimming and re-planting.
