The wiki content will also be moved to GitLab. However, the
content in the Wiki tends to use significantly richer markup which has
posed trouble for the markup conversion. The conversion will almost
certainly require a bit of manual cleanup; we are currently trying to
workout the right compromise between manual post-processing and fixing
the Trac parser.
