The terms of the [[GFDL]] require certain access to [[source text]].  Any element of the [[GFDL text corpus]] must remain available in source form to anyone, and no page in it can be distributed without the URL of a source form that can be instantly retrieved by ''anyone''.  This includes those "banned" by the [[sysop power structure]].  Mediawiki provides this with the [[Special:Export]] facility in recent versions, and for unblocked IP's with "edit page" or "view source" links on every page.

We have [[Special:Export|XML-export]] enabled for this [[Development Wiki]] since the upgrade to the new [[MediaWiki]]-software, but the only [[wiki]]-[[software]] that currently supports the import is [[GetWiki]].

The GFDL guarantee also includes those who do not intend to use the mediawiki software. Bulk dumps are available only in [[MySQL dump]] format, which can be difficult software to run, and, is certainly not suitable for most purposes of a [[large public wiki]] (text searches, for instance, take an extraordinary amount of compute and disk time).
