The days of Wordpress are over: I've finally managed to migrate to the Ikiwiki engine. This has been a part of my big plan to finally get rid of any PHP based software on my servers.

The migration itself was not without troubles, thanks to the crippled export format of Wordpress, including invalid dates, an insane tag directory (I haven't managed to migrate the tags or categories by now). The dirty work was done by a Python script I worte using lxml to parse the XMl export from Wordpress and urllib2 to fetch all the attachements like images and stuff. If I ever happen to clean up the code I'll release it here.

So far I'm happy with the Git-based workflow and I like the kind of "out-of-the-shower" feeling I get from dumping another piece of PHP software. Oh, and here's a good explation why PHP is bad.
