Remove Dead and Deprecated Web Services #30
I don't mean this to be a forever thing, I think having the wiki in a middle phase between "is old and out of date and not fixable" and "we're wanting to fix it soon(?)" is the worst option. Nobody sees the "being shut down" message.
Rather than take down the wiki webserver entirely, can you just replace it with a landing page saying something like:
It seems friendlier than just making it disappear when it's by far the greatest target of Google links for most Nix searches.

Ok, I copied all the pages from https://nixos.org/wiki/Special:AllPages and pasted them in to https://nixos.org/wiki/Special:Export and made an export of all pages with all versions, available for a limited time here: http://gsc.io/Nix+Wiki-20170503130016.xml
@edolstra can you mirror this export to somewhere on nixos.org, so it can be linked to from the "down" page?
