Subject: [#5855] Upgraded OASIS wiki rollout

To OASIS TC Members:

On Wednesday, 14 March, the OASIS IT team will roll out an upgraded version of MoinMoin, the software used for our TC
Wikis. As part of this upgrade, OASIS members will now be able to login to the TC Wiki using their Kavi login
credentials. If you are a member or voting member of a TC, and you have already provided your username/password, you
will be allowed to create and edit pages without being challenged for your login information at posting time. MoinMoin
will also now be able to identify who made changes based on your Kavi login, a highly-desired feature that we were
unable to provide with the previous implementation.

The table below shows a list of current and new features, and when each of those features is available to the user.

While significant internal testing was done, we ask that you review any content related to your technical committee that
is hosted on wiki.oasis-open.org. Please note any problems, anomalies, or unexpected behaviors and send them to

During the cut over the wikis will be unavailable; this shouldn't last for more than 15-30 minutes.

As a reminder, OASIS provides a wiki for TCs upon request. The index of TC wikis can be found at:
http://wiki.oasis-open.org/. For further information, please send a message to tc-admin@oasis-open.org.
