I am afraid restoring the Wiki may not be that easy (or at least if it
can still be done not for much longer), but it is possible. 


The page histories on PHP wikis only keep more recent page versions and
in some cases I fear the original may be inaccessible. It is at least
also several hours work, partly because many of the genuine page changes
were done by non-logged in users. Some of the restoration needs to be
done with admin rights to delete pages and lock each page as restored.  


Do you know who has admin rights on the Wiki? I don't mind helping to do
the restoration if a lock down is the way forward but I would want to
talk to someone with admin rights on how to do it. Also it would have to
be in the next couple of days before I go away for Easter. I have done
complete reversions a few times but I gnome too many wikis to keep doing
ones without good built-in immunity.


I would favour dropping the links from SVG and returning to the problem
later. I would also favour switching to Moinmoin as Dan has done at the
ESW wiki.
