If we were to feel it important to preserve the editorial history of the
original wiki page [1], there may be more complicated methods of "exporting" a
page with its entire version history and "importing" it into another wiki --
but someone would need to look into this.  The easier way is to create a new
wiki Page B (e.g., [2]), "select all" the source of Page A [3], and paste that
source into Page B...

Doing so creates a new page with a new version history.  Since this page is
unsigned, Gordon (or Karen) should perhaps port the page themselves so that the
History tab identifies one of them as an author of the first version of the new
page.  Alternatively, we could simply add an introductory note describing the
origins of the page (and pointing back to [3]!), in which Gordon and Karen could
be given credit for their work.
