Hi everyone,

I filed a ticket with IS last week to see if we could get the content
of wiki.u.c.

I've been provided with a 96MB tarball of all the text pages on
wiki.ubuntu.com, as well as 6.8GB of attachments.

If someone is interested in doing an analysis of what it would take to
do a migration then you'll need this stuff. It take about 10 minutes
to fire up a mediawiki and moin stack with juju/lxd, so if you have a
16.04 machine it's pretty trivial. My team can also provide AWS
credentials to people who want to take a serious crack at it, though
the LXD way is much faster/cheaper.

Here's a bunch of scripts from the mediawiki community:
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/MoinMoin

Also, please note that the technical aspects are not the only bits.
The community needs to decide if we want to do this and ensure we have
people to see it through and Make It Happen(tm), make a plan, etc.
Coordinate with Canonical IS, etc. In the meantime if people want to
use this data to make prototypes and do feasibility studies, then by
all means do so!

Also please note, this is wiki.ubuntu.com, not help.ubuntu.com. But I
figure if we figure out one the other one shouldn't be a problem.

If someone wants a copy to toss onto a torrent or something please
ping me on IRC: jcastro.
