[opensuse-project] All openSUSE wikis updated and moved home
Dear openSUSE Community,

sometimes plans change while you are working on them ;-)

The plan for yesterday evening was to move and update some of the
localized wikis. Things worked better and faster than expected, and in
the end we moved *all 18 localized wikis* from Provo to Nuremberg and
updated them to MediaWiki 1.27 :-)

This means *all* openSUSE wikis are now running on MediaWiki 1.27 and
support the features announced for the english wiki last week [1].

I didn't have time to change the <feed> tags to the new <rss> tags in
all wikis yet. I'll do that in the next days, but I won't complain if
someone is faster and does it in some of the wikis ;-)
(use the search to find pages containing "<feed", and check
https://en.opensuse.org/Help:RSS_feeds for the <rss> syntax)


For those who are interested in statistics:
- moving 18 wikis in about 6 hours means about 20 minutes per wiki - can
someone beat this? ;-)
- during the move, we wrote about 500 lines on IRC to coordinate
everything
- this helped to keep the read-only time of each wiki short - I'd guess
on average each wiki was read-only for 30 minutes (again, can someone
beat this? ;-)
- we moved about 10 GB of uploaded files and 1.6 GB of mysql dumps
from Provo to Nuremberg yesterday (which was sometimes "funny" because
the server in Provo limits the connection to 10 MBit)

And now - have fun with the updated wikis and the upcoming openSUSE
Leap 42.3!


Regards,

Christian Boltz

computers is coders know computers are schizophrenic little children
with auto-immune diseases and we don't beat them when they're bad.
