-1 this isn't the plan we agreed upon before I started working on this.
We had explicitly wanted to split the content up, between the umbrella
(Aeolus), the all-in-one solution (conductor), and the other wikis.
We had discussed alternatives to using the site wiki, but the only one
we came up with was using a mediawiki instance. We didn't want to do
this since the last mediawiki instance we instance was littered with
spam, though in retrospect I'm sure we could have found a way to deal w/
Ah, okay. I remember that discussion, though I forgot we decided to use
the site wiki. In any event, I don't have a better suggestion. (It also
looks like the Tech Cabal has been keeping notes there already, so
there's a precedent for its use.)
I am willing to compromise. If anyone insists on not using the site
wiki, I'll do the export, generating tarballs with the content separated
in the manner I described below, and hand them off to whoever wants to
take it from there.

I'm fine w/ the first one being on the conductor wiki.

Again the original plan was to _not_ delete anything off the old wiki,
just lock it down.
Sorry, my memory must be going...
Everything being migrated and everything excluded will still be
available there in read-only mode.
At some point in the far future (lets say 6 months from now) we can look
at whether or not we want to take redmine down for good.

Same comment as above. Unless there is a specific reason not to exclude
it (eg 'we need xyz because ...') we can leave it on the old read-only
wiki until someone needs it (and then they can move it to wherever they
want themselves ;-) ).

This is fine, will move this to the conductor wiki.

There are actually many pages that contain this same content. Not really
sure why we have several copies.

Hence the mid-to-end of January timeline! ;-) (which now is seeming a
little tight in itself)
Okay, sorry for my apparent memory lapses. I didn't mean to contradict
what had already been decided, and I didn't realize the plan was to keep
the old wiki read-only. That eliminates most of my concerns!
