Hi Kizu,

Do you mean technically use it or more as in policy? Technically it is
quite easy, you go to the wiki where you want to import, go to the
page Special:Import, and you do some selections and click on import.
Maybe you have to use Special:ExpandTemplates to bring over the
templates looking all right.

On policy: there has been a good discussion on this very list some
time ago about the use of the foundationwiki. There were also
mentionings of moving away pages that are not totally necessarily,
such as outdated non-finished reports, failed projects. I think we
should focus on clear definitions of what shoudl stay. I think at
least should stay:

*Bylaws and other formal documents of the WMF
*Static information pages (who's who in the board and on employees)
*Fundraising pages
*Official press releases
*List of all acknowledged wiki's, chapters etc.
*Benefactors / Sponsors

and possibly translations of these

So these should be moved to meta at least:

*News as in non-official press releases
*Possibly userpages
*Pages like [[It is forbidden to take pictures !/Ru]]

and a lot of other pages like that.

I hope my cents will help.
Greetings, Lodewijk
