I'm happy to announce that the OESF Wiki is finally back online. It can be now reached from here:


You can reach it also by clicking on the new OESF Wiki link at the top of the main forum page.

I have upgraded MediaWiki to the last released version (1.23.17) which still supports the old version of PHP installed on our ibiblio account (5.3.28). This version of MediaWiki is an LTS one (Long Term Support) which was supported until last May; I'll ask for a more uptodate version of PHP to be installed, then I'll update MediaWiki to the latest, supported version.
If any of you had a Wiki account, please try to login and report any problem, if you find any.
The pages sometimes take ages to load, I remember this being a problem also in the past; I'll see if the PHP and MediaWiki upgrade will make any difference, and eventually find how to speed up the loading times.
I have changed the Wiki's logo to a new, temporary one, which I quickly made in a couple of minutes (and it shows, heh). Not the prettiest logo in the world, but personally I already prefer it over the old one, but let me know if you still prefer the old one, or if you'd like to contribute with a new one.

The whole Wiki layout requires an overhaul, too: the chapters should be better organised, all the parts related to the Zaurus should be more clearly labelled, the new wiki made by koan should be integrated, and so on. There's also a lot of spam which will have to be located and removed.

In short, lots of work still to be done, but we are getting there. Any volunteer will be warmly welcomed!
