Maybe some of you will think of this as a "marketinhg" thing, but let's face it : for most users on the Web "wiki" is synonym with "MediaWiki-powered sites that look like wikipedia".
What I propose is to create the theme and tools to facilitate migration of mediawiki powered sites to tikiwiki the (very) easy way : fill a form during install that points to the Mediawiki database, and extract all the info to automagically populate the Tiki. I'm willing to participate, but I do not feel I have the required knowledge at this moment to be able to do something useful in the coding part : I know little to no PHP or MySQL stuff, I even wasn't able to install Tiki properly here (shame on me).
What I see as important work items :
- theme creation : to get a similar look&feel as wikipedia.
- content copy : to get all pages in mediawiki in the tiki database
- markup translation : to replace all (or most) of the wiki markup
- discussion web (since tiki has no "discussion page" structure, but allows many parallel sites, I'd propose to make it a www.site.tld and talk.site.tld
- optionally, multi-lingual recovery : being able to get all the different language versions of a site in one synchronized entity would be fabulous. To be evaluated separately, as it could be also very difficult to get consistency without a lot of manual matching between pages.
- attachments consideration : how to go from a "common image library" towards the tiki way
- other feature matching : I believe that all mediawiki features should be evaluated and for each, explanation given of why/how Tiki is superior.

Unable to get information from show2.tikiwiki.org. Please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
Show.tiki.org is in the progress of creating the new instance. Please continue waiting for a minute or two. If this continues on for more than 10 minutes, please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
To help developers solve the bug, we kindly request that you demonstrate your bug on a show2.tikiwiki.org instance. To start, simply select a version and click on "Create show2.tikiwiki.org instance". Once the instance is ready (in a minute or two), as indicated in the status window below, you can then access that instance, login (the initial admin username/password is "admin") and configure the Tiki to demonstrate your bug. Priority will be given to bugs that have been demonstrated on show2.tikiwiki.org.
The URL for the show2.tikiwiki.org instance that demonstrates this bug is at: http://. Note that if you get a popup asking for a username/password, please just enter "show" and "show". This is different from the initial login and password for a new Tiki which is "admin" and "admin".
For the install log, see http:///info.txt
Note that if you see PHP errors or a Tiki claiming to be missing third party software, the instance creation is probably not finished. Please wait a couple minutes and reload.
Snapshots are database dumps of the configuration that developers can download for debugging. Once you have reproduced your bug on the show2.tikiwiki.org instance, create a snapshot that can then be downloaded by developers for further investigation.
Snapshots can be accessed at: http:///snapshots/. Note that if you get a popup asking for a username/password, please just enter "show" and "show".Create new snapshot
