Hi Dave,

I and the GnuCash developers didn't know of the wiki, so the 
gnomesupport one was the only one that we knew in the gnome community. For us 
it's just fine if you guys prefer to move one into the other. (IIRC the 
MoinMoin-wiki of is also the more powerful wiki system, but 
that's rather an implementation detail.) 

So for us it would be fine if you move the content over to We 
would just like to ask for some transistion period, maybe 2-4 weeks, during 
which the old gnomesupport-wiki is still online (maybe in read-only state?), 
so that we have some time to change the links in our own website and 
documentation. Apart from that, you can just decide for yourself when and how 
to do this step.
