Latest news

12:14, 18 December 2011 (UTC) Stale pages are sometimes shown. You may see a page without your login, or an edited page which does not show your last edits! (Don't worry, they are there; they just don't show.) This is a problem between the wiki and the ATS cache service; we're working on it.

Workaround: Add the directive &purge=1 to a special form of the page URL. The easiest way to get the URL is to copy the URL from the edit or view tab on the page, and paste it into the browser bar. You will see something like:
Now, edit the end of the URL: remove the existing directive(s) and add the &purge=1 directive instead, giving you:
When you go to that URL, you should see your desired page, and everything should work normally.

02:47, 6 November 2011 (UTC) Old Bugzilla links are not working, pending address redirection. Template:Bug has been hard-coded for the Apache instance. Please replace any explicit links with template calls like {{Bug|nnnnnn}} or {{Issue|nnnnnn}}.
18:45, 4 November 2011 (UTC) "127" problem fixed.
11:30, 1 November 2011 (UTC) "" may show up in internal URLs, causing "page not found" errors.

Workaround: Edit the URL in your browser bar, replacing "" with the string, "", so that a corrected URL might look like, ""
For problem details, see "known Problems", below.

14:09, 30 October 2011 (UTC) Wiki up and unfrozen, addresses redirected. User watchlists have been cleared; rebuild them as you please. Have fun!
12:08, 28 October 2011 (UTC) We're here! This is the new home. Accounts and password details TBS.
23:07, 23 October 2011 (UTC) Migration (and outages) likely to start sooner (Wednesday or Thursday).
12:25, 22 October 2011 (UTC) Expect outages starting next Friday night or Saturday morning (Oct 28/29, 2011 UTC).

Expected changes

12:25, 22 October 2011 (UTC) Probably none. Accounts and addresses should work as they always did. All data will be preserved.

Known problems (technical)

17:33, 30 October 2011 (UTC) Bad link ( in system message(?) to create Talk page. Chasing problem.

11:04, 1 November 2011 (UTC) The bad link ( is being delivered erroneously by magic word {{fullurl}}. Chasing solution.
18:45, 4 November 2011 (UTC) Fixed. Thanks, Terry.

12:08, 28 October 2011 (UTC) Missing icons on top line of edit box.

14:09, 30 October 2011 (UTC) Fixed. Thanks, Gavin.

12:25, 22 October 2011 (UTC) Due to a version fall-back of the DPL extension, the DPL commands are less capable and more fussy (they do not tolerate CSS inside a template call). I will revise the affected templates, and any other uses I find (or you point out!).

Update freeze

21:55, 24 October 2011 (UTC) All normal user update to the wiki is now frozen until migration is complete. Only sysops will make changes to this legacy wiki instance until the migration is complete.

01:00, 29 October 2011 (UTC) The wiki is now unfrozen and available for general use as One fortunate aspect missed in the freeze is that user accounts were allowed to be created in this 5 day freeze window, but these were lost on cut-over. So apologies to those who created user accounts in this window. The workaround is simply to recreate the account.


As part of the transfer of from Oracle/Kenai to the Apache Software Foundation, this wiki is being re-hosted on Apache servers. This requires some service outage (as brief as we can manage) while the wiki is dumped and reloaded, and addresses are redirected.
