In brief: We tried to merge permaculture.info into Appropedia.org, but it was impossible. However, we can recover some of the pages from archive.org. If you want to help, please let me know.
You may remember a few years back there was a permaculture wiki at permaculture.info. It lived, it died, it lived again, it died again. Eventually we managed to get agreement to import the old permaculture.info wiki into Appropedia.org (the sustainability wiki).
. But the database was corrupted.
And after spending a lot of time & effort, including having two developers examine it, and all the time that takes when you're a tiny nonprofit with little, it was unrecoverable, and there were apparently no backups.
But there is good news
– some pages are preserved on archive.org. With a small coordinated effort we can import all of those to Appropedia. I'm a bit stretched at the moment, but if someone's keen to help, we could divide up the work and get it done. (When we do the moves, I suggest using an edit summary of "from permaculture.info" to acknowledge the good work that went before.) Please let me know.
Oh, and an important message about Appropedia: We're all about the wiki, and we have regular backups made, so we should be pretty safe. (We're also supposed to have a publicly available weekly backup of all text, for extra resilience – right now we're working on getting that happening again.)
