The wiki has finished migration to ikiwiki now. There are some issues that should be sorted out manually on a per-page basis. XDC pages are back up.

After last fortnight's decision to use CC-BY-SA for wiki content, Julien Cristau reminded us that MIT is better for moving content from the wiki to official documentation. Vote carried, we'll be using MIT for wiki content.

Items discussed

ITEM: Wiki migration
Wiki migration is complete now and runs on ikiwiki. There are still some
issues with various pages, but these need to be done manually.
You will need a new account, see here for details:
ACTION: Fixing up the general issues
STATUS: Complete

ITEM: Wiki license: MIT
Julien suggested to use MIT after last week's decision for CC-BY-SA. MIT
allows us to move content from the wiki into documentation without having to
worry about the license.
ACTION: Martin P to add license info to wiki
STATUS: Pending

ITEM: X.Org trademark
The board received an email from a .cn registrar. A company is trying to
register 'similar-sounding' domain names after registering X as a brand
ACTION: Alan C to dig up trademark info, Peter H to contact the registrar
STATUS: Pending
UPDATE: This was identified as scam - no action is being taken
