That's probably sane by default. Thanks for the pointer.

I think it would be good to have the following set up before we move:
* OpenStack theme -- volunteers ?
* Cleaned up main page -- I may have a shot at this one
* Root-served articles (to avoid breaking links) -- Ryan
* Access control on protected pages -- Ryan

Then we can work post-migration (in a sprint or in the following
days/weeks) on various conversion issues on sub pages:
* Table issues
* Link issues
* Image inclusions
* etc.
