These pages will continue to be rendered on one of your boxen.  The wiki
infrastructure will be kept running there just as before -- only with the
web server reacting to requests from a a different port.  (Hereby starts
the contest of getting consensus about which port to use.  Barry has a
veto right.)  The only difference is that the appearance on
<http://hurd.gnu.org/> a.k.a. <http://www.gnu.org/software/hurd/> will
then show these (former wiki, then official web) pages as well, instead
of the pages it's showing at the moment.

Speaking about it, I have now finished merging the old web pages into the
current set wiki pages, done a bunch of clean-ups, and made that
available at <http://www.thomas.schwinge.homeip.net/hurd-wiki/>.  What
needs to be done before this can officially be made available at
