Perfect! Thanks to both of you. The team confirmed to me today that since we have the old wiki archive, they're less concerned with establishing *who* made a change, so I can quick-script reconstructing the .changes files from the attic files I have, and just use a placeholder for the change author field.

Awesome, thanks! That's a great starting point. I'll take a look at those functions and see if I can cobble something together.

Subject: Reconstructing attic meta pages
We're in the process of migrating a large, long-lived wiki from MoinMoin to Dokuwiki. After some massaging, I got a publicly available converter script to convert the pages from one to the other, and it faithfully rendered the historical page copies into the attic, along with constructing a [page].meta file for each one. Everything is loaded into Dokuwiki and looks good, except for the 'Old Revisions' link for each page, which only shows the current version.

The problem is that in order for the 'revisions' link for a page to show the list of historical pages, it needs a [page].changes file created under meta/. Is there a way to reconstruct those .changes pages based on the .meta file and the pages in the attic?
