please not static. I know we have not been active of late, but it
totally won't help, if we need to climb a hill of administrative tasks,
before we can even get starting thinking about making a new release.
Frankly, we did not come to KDE back in the day in order to increase
our administrative overhead...
We're really open to solutions of all kinds. Twice sysadmin had
proposed to somehow unify the rkward mediawiki installation with
the techbase and userbase installation. We gave green light on both
occasions, but nothing happened after that.
I wouldn't mind any other hosting solution, really, it doesn't have to
be wiki-based. Provided that we can have a - relatively - smooth
migration path, and that we don't have to switch to something new yet
again, in two or three years.
