Thomas Schwinge has been working on finding a replacement for the wiki,

OK, sounds good.

In the mean time I'll try to get some time off to do the manual

are bogus spam-bot registrations, which is the reason this manual step
was needed in the first place).

Duck has also offered hosting, that should not be a problem.
What might help is getting a dump/backup of the current gnufans wiki so
we can restore/integrate it with whatever wiki we are going to use.

As I've said in a previous post I'm willing to take the time out to
