Hi everybody,

some of you may have already seen that the wiki engine used for esw has
been changed from moin moin to media wiki. All the old LOD pages are
there (hopefully:-) without any damage and at the same URI-s as before,
ie, there should be not real change for you guys. Except that media wiki
is faster and more reliable than moin-moin...

The only difference in practice is the access control. The old approach
on moin-moin (with the requirement of being 'added' to a special page by
somebody who already had a writing permission) was really just a hack.
On the new version of the wiki you have to log in to the media wiki
using your public or member W3C account. (To ask for a public account,
you simply have to fill a form on [1], if you are part of a member
organization, you most probably have such account already, but you can
ask one via the separate form[2]).

Note that the access you gain to esw wiki is not restricted to esw; it
will also give you access to other wikis, like the SWSWiki[3]).
