No problem, just nudging. :-)

Great, whatever you think makes sense. In the end SAC will have to
make a decision what suits them best if we migrate to OSGeo
infrastructure. Just prodded around a bit, there is tons os Spam in
the current Wiki so we will really need to pick the stuff which is
intact. I could help by exporting relevant pages using the MediaWiki
frontend, maybe it would help to have a SysAdmin account - and maybe
an extension has to be activates, not sure.

I already chatted with Frank offlist, this should not be a problem,
other than finding someone who would do it (/me has no experience here).

No justification needed, I'd say you have committed enough for one or
two lifetimes anyway (same goes for Chris).

SAC, things will proceed over the next weeks. If we need you we'll
ping you.
