Description: Migrating from wikimedia to pmwiki would be nice to have a set of rules which interpret the syntax in the same way like wikimedia does.

Would it suffice to have a conversion option that converts wikimedia markup into PmWiki equivalent syntax? Just curious.. --Pm

Yes it would be sufficient. At least we would be able to cut & paste pages from edit view. On the other side, thinking about the future it would be nice to have a "compatibity mode". As PmWiki syntax is extendible, I can imagine it is even possible to customize it so far it will work with wikimedia-like syntax. This would be a great advantage for all users already familiar and used to wikipedia. --Tomas Baublys
