I guess we don't have to argue about that but Martin and me
were really swamped with this cleanup (which I also do for
the OSGeo wiki) that it was no longer acceptable.

Re LDAP: since the Wiki logins were separate from the OSGeo
LDAP, many users will have differing names. This makes a Wiki
migration to LDAP authentication a difficult (read: manual) job.
See the OSGeo-SAC list for the discussion.

Since the Debian version on the shared projects-machine from
OSGeo is the last but one version, its Mediawiki version is just
antique... It lacks several features we are using for years.
