Sending again with a different email address. It seems sourceforge  
does not like me (or at least my yahoo address) :(
Sorry if you received this email twice.

Hi all (again),

I finished upgrading the wiki to the latest stable version and  
everything should be back to normal. If you see any issue, please let  
me know.

Extension updated:
* Cite
* SyntaxHighlight_GeSHi

You can find the documentation at:

You will notice in this documentation that for SyntaxHighlight_GeSHi  
the correct syntax should be either
<source lang="cpp">foo();</source>
<syntaxhighlight lang="cpp">foo();</syntaxhighlight>.

This is different from what was used before. I have modified the code  
of the extension so that it also supports the old syntax
<syntax type="C++">foo();</syntax>

I also installed three more extensions:
* Dynamic Page List
* ParserFunctions
* StringFunctions (included in ParserFunctions now in the unstable  
version, but was not the case for the last stable version which is  
the one I installed)

The documentations can be found at:

> 2) Backup wiki installation and database.
> 3) Upgrade to 1.15.1
> 4) Update the skin and extensions as needed.
> 5) Make some tests to check the wiki works correctly.
> 6) Restore write access.
> I will be on IRC during that time and I will stay on IRC afterward  
> in case somebody finds a problem.
> If this plan does not suit you, please let me know and I will try  
> to find another time for the upgrade.
