As far as migrating the website on to this wiki, it would be very helpful to 
have a list of the source pages and their wiki equivalents that need 
migrating, otherwise it is very hard for a volunteer to pick a page and do 
it. E.g.  page [[WebMigration]] contains

Volunteers need to migrate these pages.
Pick a page below, and create the matching wiki page. Once you have done this, 
delete the line from here

[http://alsa-project.org/applications.php]  [[Applications]] 
... etc

Is there a reason NOT to migrate the 'developers only' wiki on 
alsa-project.org into the 'official wiki' .  Converting from wikkawakka to 
mediawiki on the way.

If the (currently active) contributors to the developer wiki agreed, I'd be 
willing to do the grunt work of moving the pages. but the page 'owners' might 
prefer to do the copy and keep the  authorship intact...

JamesCourtierDutton 15 pages
LiamGirdwood 2 or 3 pages
ClemensLadisch 1 page
NormanSchleicher 2 pages
JohnUtz 3 pages
JaroslavKysela 5 pages

And, in the official wiki,  would we want a separate Development: namespace?
Something the wiki-master needs to create.
or is a Development: category a better way to go.

At the end of this migration, we'd be down to 2 wikis, both MediaWiki, so a 
future merge would be easier(???)
Integrating official and unofficial is a bridge to cross...later.
However, setting up some interwiki mappings between the 2 would make it easier 
to crosslink:
