The status is that the W3C does not plan to shut down the ESW
Wiki, but is basically encouraging groups to use our MediaWiki
system for new content instead of putting it into the ESW Wiki.
Part of the reason being that we seem to get more complaints about
problems in the MoinMoin-based backend that it uses, and less
complaints about problems with the MediaWiki system.

I will get a MediaWiki instance set up for the HTML WG. Once we do
have that, I suggest we just keep the existing pages at the ESW
Wiki, and migrate them over as needed, but use the MediaWiki for
any new pages.
