MediaWiki wikis are allowed to be hosted on SourceForge.

jdd forwarded me the mail at
to explain why he thought wikis were not authorised to stay in

This misunderstanding seems to related to the announced changes at
where it was said "all existing group directory space will be mounted
read-only." However, data in a MySQL database is still writable, so
MediaWiki can still be hosted on Sourceforge. More info is at
<http://sourceforge.net/docs/E07/>, a, document which explains the two
ways of storing writable data on Sourceforge. It did cause Twiki to
move (<http://twiki.org/cgi-bin/view/Codev/TheNewTWikiDotOrgServer>),
but shouldn't affect MediaWiki or others that use a MySQL database.
