[Fwd: Re: GnuCash pages on gnomesupport.org wiki]

Christian Stimming
The reply of the gnomesupport.org wiki maintainer. Basically says that
we should make up our mind -- and if we do move to our own wiki server,
he will most probably shut down the gnomesupport.org wiki completely.

Hello Christian,

The wiki really doesn't get much usage, other than its usage by the
GNUCash Team. If you need it then I will surely keep it running. If the
GNUCash project were to migrate away from it then I would most likely
shut it down leaving a message holder in its place stating that I would
resurrect it if enough people committed to tending it, and building it.
I myself barely have enough time to check it for spam every several
days. (You actually spend more time keeping it clean than I do).

I am very much committed to keeping gnomesupport.org running and keeping
the forums running. But signal to noise ratio on the wiki is high, and
the wiki tends to take more time and is more difficult to keep clean
compared to gnomedesktop.org and the forums on gnomesupport.org.

So if you would like to keep using the wiki, feel free to do so. If wish
to migrate to your own wiki system, let me know when you have finished
the migration.

Thanks,
Luke

To me this sounds like we should take over the wiki ourselves
so he can stop spending time on it.
