Re: [release] Action for PTLs & projects: Project Wiki Pages

Luis Gomez

As I said in this morning TSC, we have ODL interns helping moving content from old wiki to new wiki. If PTLs just fix the project landing page links to point to the right old wiki links, the interns can easily pick up and move old wiki links content to confluence.

Removed announce and added discuss.

Please note there are copied over project pages on Confluence currently - however they have stale links. You will need to create sub-pages and copy over those sub-pages from mediawiki.

Project Wiki Pages

  • OpenDaylight wiki was updated earlier in the year from using mediawiki to using Confluence. The old mediawiki is still available at, but now points to Confluence.   
  • However individual Project Wikis have not been updated in Confluence - these need to be done by the projects themselves. We need the PTLs and the projects to copy over content from the mediawiki.  If this is not done it is extremely hard to locate project specific information for both the old and the new users.
    • We had already talked about this and actioned the projects in the past - but this has not been done so far.
  • What projects need to do:
    • Locate your old project page from
    • Locate your new project page from (Projects). 
    • Make sure the relevant and still valid content from the old project page has been copied over to the new project page. If it has not been copied over cleanly - make sure it has been copied over. It is likely Casey Cain has copied over the basic stuff.
    • You will need to create a new page for each of the sub pages of the project and link it to your project main page.
    • Overall this process is usually a matter of copy-paste but may involve some more editing, creating new pages as well as fixing links.
    • We need this to be done ASAP. We will keep a deadline for this as 16 Jul 2020 - which will give projects 2 weeks to finish this.
    • Daniel De La Rosa will be adding & tracking this requirement as part of the Aluminum release.

Please note the above from the TSC meeting minutes ( from today. Two weeks is a reasonable deadline - we really need this to be done. If you are on a vacation or have a reason which makes it hard to finish by July 16 - please let Daniel & me know when you can finish it as soon as you are back from your vacation.
