Migration from TWiki to FosWiki

Simple Timeline

  • April 15 (tax day), we announce on biostat-all that we'll be updating the wiki
  • May 1 we stop all edits to the content and switch over immediately
  • Then mop up.

To Do List

  • Update CSS to use fixed-width font in raw edit.
  • Possible use ChapterEditPlugin instead of sectionedit
  • Test EmbedBibPlugin
  • Fix Notification changes
  • attachment security
  • top bar issues
  • table of contents doesn't create short urls (turn on Apache plugin to change links?)

Procedure for Updating the FosWiki Install

Foswiki currently lives on biostat3 inside a git repository. You can create/edit/delete files freely there. When you are done, however, please commit your changes like so:

git add <file-you-worked-on> [<another-file> ...]
git commit

If you delete a file, additionally run the following before committing:

git rm <file-you-deleted>

You can see which files have changed by running git status. To add/remove files that git already knows about, run git add -u.

Please note that you need to add all files you worked on, regardless of whether or not they are actually new files. Git behaves differently from Subversion in this regard (and many other regards). If you have general questions about git, here are some resources:
