Re: Converting perl5 wiki to mojomojo

Hi Casey,

I'm very busy these days, but can you give me until the end of the
week to see how far the migration can go? A flat import based on the
list of pages (http://www.perlfoundation.org/data/workspaces/perl5/pages)
is certainly feasible.

I'm CC-ing the mailing list in case someone else wants to pitch in.
Casey is looking into migrating The Perl Foundation wiki to a better
platform, and MojoMojo might be an excellent candidate.
