Good news, the first round of test wiki uploads of JavaScript pages just 
completed.  The batch upload took about 21 minutes to complete.  The 
root of the upload is:


If you take the "all pages" link a special page listing all the files 
can be used to look around.  There are too many to list so the "Next 
page" link will show you the remainder.

The first very obvious problem is that I have to update all the internal 
links.  One example is that I uploaded a page as:

     Tests/javascript-b/Future Reserved Words

But the internal link to that page (from the "JavaScript Reference" 
page) points to the root of the wiki:

     [[Future Reserved Words|JavaScript Future Reserved Words]]: 
Provides ....

That's an easy fix, I'll get that in within a day.

The automation priorities are probably in this order:
1.  IT WORKS -- the links will be fixed and I'll upload again tomorrow 
(Saturday 11/23)
2.  IT'S IN THE RIGHT PLACE -- the paths should be right, so have a look 
at where things are.
3.  CONTENT FILTERING -- there are things to fix with page content like 
lots of empty "see also" sections, or vendor-specific information, or 
links we don't want, and so forth.  Much of this can be automatically 
fixed.  If it's just one or two pages, we can do that by hand later.
4.  TEMPLATES -- add semantic form templates
5.  ANYTHING ELSE -- any large-scale fix-ups that should be programmed 
before we declare the import effort finished.

As each of the above progress, I'll re-upload everything all over again, 
so it will undergo incremental improvements.
