Hi to all who contributed to the wiki so far:

Following the recent migration of moinmoin to mediawiki we are now
harmonizing the authentication setup of the various W3C wiki instances.
It is more difficult to maintain multiple authentication schemes and
leads to user confusion when inconsistent across our different wikis.

On Wednesday 21 April your wiki (see list below) will be tied to the W3C
LDAP service which will simplify the user administration as you will not
have to maintain wiki users anymore (users will be kept in sync with the
participants of the linked DBWG group(s)).
Please inform your group of this migration.

[IMPORTANT] Note that as a consequence of this change:
- Users will log in using their W3C Account (which means they might get
a different wiki username than what they currently have).
- OpenID authentication will not be available anymore.
- Existing local wiki users and groups will be deleted.

Please note that only participants of the PLING will be able to edit.

Best, 

Rigo
