Saving content from TI Wiki

Dear Beagleboard.org overseers,

The TI Processors Wiki is being shutdown. I think valuable information would be lost that cannot be found in TRMs or Datasheets. For example, the following opcodes information was crucial while porting the GNU assembler for PRU:
https://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php/Programmable_Realtime_Unit

Are you willing to transfer that and similar content to beagleboard.org ? Wikimedia page sources can be mostly automatically translated to MarkDown or HTML. So content could be served as a static page, with no need to host dynamic Wiki.

Regards,
Dimitar

I don't think we could get access to that..

I don’t think we could get access to that…

Wikimedia page source is still available: https://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php?title=Programmable_Realtime_Unit&action=edit . EOL is scheduled for December.

I think TI would be supportive in giving us copies of relevant content. I barely got started copying content over to eLinux.org–that seems like the best host to me.

If you look at my latest contribution history (https://elinux.org/Special:Contributions/Jkridner), you can see a few pages I started to copy over to the Beagleboard space on elinux.org.

You can also see the assets didn’t get moved over by me copying and pasting the text, obviously. I tried for a few minutes to think of a way to automate and didn’t arrive at anything.

Remind me the next few days to provide the list I got on potential content. Then, others can add to that list if we missed anything. Mine is based on a spreadsheet I got from TI.

If anyone has good suggestions on automating the move, please let me know.

Am I correct in assuming that we are talking about documentation? Also the older forums. I presume that all software (compilers, SDKs, etc) will still be available.

I also started making a list. I will be interested to see your list(s)!
