At Qt Contributor Day in SF I talked to Alexandra Leisse about
MediaWiki. Specifically, she hates MediaWiki, and I suggested moving to
Confluence, as it's a much, much, much, much nicer wiki than MediaWiki,
and doing it soon before lots of content made migration more difficult.
This would also take care of the SSI problem, as well as the SSO
problem, between the wiki and the bug reports, and enable nice
integration between the two.
I'm not just suggesting it; I'm volunteering. One of the main things I
think I can do to help out the Qt project is do sysadmin (I'm a KDE
sysadmin, and I do sysadmin things at work too, and I've set up the
majority of the Atlassian tools there complete with Crowd for SSO).
However, Alexandra hasn't yet pointed me to the right person to talk to.
Right person, get in touch with me, please.
