MAVENUSER space and spam

The confluence wiki linked from our home page has been inundated with SPAM. I had been deleting small amounts of it for a while, but the last batch added something like 13000 pages, so I asked Codehaus to remove access to the new users (that is, we'll need to put editors in a group). It hasn't had a lot of legitimate editors for a while, though.

Codehaus is working through automated means of removing the spam, but we probably need to decide what to do with how to get people access and maintain it if we're to continue to use it in that way.

Cheers,
Brett

At this stage would it not be better to move the good content to an ASF
hosted space and just remove the rest?
