Hi nice people interested in CentOS Docs and wiki !

There were already threads about migrating the wiki to something else
(mediawiki, $other), or staying with moinmoin (what we now have in place).
This mail isn't about that thread (but feel free to start a new one
about that possible migration or not), but about just migrating the
current moinmoin instance from the current machine to a new one.

I've installed a test machine (CentOS 6, with selinux in enforcing mode,
our standard now everywhere) on which I've installed moinmoin (but same
version as the one running now on wiki.centos.org (so
moin-1.5.8-3.el6.noarch vs moin-1.5.8-2.acls.el4.centos.noarch )

Can I ask all of you to do some intensive tests around that test
instance please ?
So far it seems to work (editing page, login, reset password with email
, etc) but we'd like to be sure before migrating wiki.centos.org

Can I so ask for you collaboration/feedback please ? and surely if it's
a "yeah, works for me [TM]" :-)

The data on that testing instance is the one from 2014-09-01 (so two
days ago), so your login should work with the same password  that you
were (or are still) using two days ago.


PS : we've just added a basic auth to block some search engines from
crawling/indexing that wiki instance, and have duplicate pages indexed.

Happy testing !
