-Re: What is the status of moving from MoinMoin to Confluence? EOM

So, current status is:
* Confluence wiki is now open for anyone to edit it (per cutting).
* I've done some content updates:
* I've moved over the page on HowToRelease.
* I've also copied over the Hadoop code review checklist as it was
referenced from How To Contribute.
* I fixed the formatting on How To Contribute.
* The website update will be built and pushed by either cutting or massie.
* The old wiki will redirect to the new and cutting will be taking care of
So, I think all that remains is the website update and the redirects to be
put in place and we can call this done!
