[ZWeb] wiki mirroring plan

Sure! I meant to be clearer. Practicing my citing/footnoting skills: since 
it turns out that a zwiki upgrade on zope.org is not easy due to zope 
version dependency[1], I'm now pursuing the suggestion of Andrew[2], 
Lennart[3] and Michael[4] to harvest the wiki content off zope.org and host 
it on a modern zwiki server as a step towards our goal.

I plan to start with the zope 3 developer wiki, the most active zope.org 
wiki. I'll mirror it as-is on the joyful.com server, transferring the wiki 
content by wget, export or whatever works, preserving things like 
hierarchy, subscribers and so on as far as possible. I'll seek a repeatable 
process, as I expect to do it more than once. Once the mirrored wiki is in 
place, I'll add any anti-spam and usability configuration that seems 
helpful. Then I'll announce it here. It will have some preliminary url like 
zope3.zwiki.org. (I think we should explore how bring the many zope wikis 
together under wiki.zope.org, but later.)

One warning: the joyful.com zope server, which hosts zwiki.org, 
zopewiki.org and some community wikis, is a hosted VPS with quite limited 
RAM, so it won't be fast. But should be good enough for the moment.

This is my current plan, and I would love any and all help or suggestions - 
join me on #zwiki or #zope-web irc channels if you can. Any better plans 
also welcome.
