Is there a major reason we need to maintain the url scheme? I personally
don't expect there to be much in the way of deep linking into the
current wiki.

I have done quite a bit of playing around with the wiki, all of which
can be discarded. I can assist with an clean up here.

The Code of Conduct [1] is a general requirement for any "official"
ubuntu content. As Ubuntu-ZA is an official LoCo, all our content must
conform to the CoC, even if content providers have not officially signed
the CoC.


I have made a few queries wrt hosting at a number of ISP's but have not
had any real success here. Approaching Obsidian might be an option as
the have recently announced that they will offer the Ubuntu Certified
Professional training programme [2] and now have a direct interest in
the success of Ubuntu.

Failing this, we can ask Jonathan to host as offered or have a quick
whip around to fund hosting at somewhere.

Ideas? Comments?

Kindest Regards

Craig A. Adams
