Re: dump notes to mediawiki, or trac

In fact the python port already has a fairly decent parser for the zim wiki format that can be used as a base for this kind of work. Your code will at least be very useful a example on how to format the trac output (btw. from your subject line I assume trac uses the mediawiki format - is that correct ?).

I will add this piece of code to the python dev tree, so it can be used as a basis later.

 The following python code is a hack, and it might fail on some syntax.
I took a choice regarding links with categories: I decided to flatten
zim links like [[:Software:note taking:zim|zim]] to wiki entries like
[Software_note_taking_zim zim].

I don't know what characters are allowed in page names in trac - is there another character that can be used to make the hierarchy more obvious ? Or maybe flatten using a double "_" ?

Thanks a lot Pablo!
