[opensuse-web] Wiki Upgrade Problems
Hi Everyone,

So it turns out we are in a pretty difficult situation with the latest upgrade.
The problem with the UTF8 page titles being corrupted is much more widespread
than I thought. I have spent a long time looking for a way to fix the issue in
the page titles that the upgrade had caused, and although it appears to be a
well known issue, no one has a real fix for it yet.

We have a few options to take:

1) Roll back all the wikis to 1.16 and restore the database to Sunday night
2) Roll back only the most affected wikis (cn, cs, ru, etc.) and restore the
3) Leave all the wikis as they are, and keep trying to fix the page titles

I'm inclined to do step number two, but I want to hear about any other options
or opinions from the individual admins before we try to roll things back. If
we can somehow get a list together of the garbled characters and the real
characters that are associated, I can even script a fix of some type (making
option number 3 more viable). If someone wants to take that on for their
particular wiki, they can see the affected pages by going to /Special:AllPages
and trying to compare.
