  1. prepare new machine (MySQL, mediawiki, Apache, backup scripts)
  2. submit request to point openwetware.mit.edu alias to new IP address (~24 hrs)
  3. change A record for openwetware.com/org (@yahoo) to new IP address (~24hrs)
  4. freeze the current wiki (no write access)
  5. after DNS changes have propagated, replicate the wiki to the new machine
  6. unfreeze the wiki on new machine

Another option is to give away model.mit.edu alias and associated IP; transition can then be done virtually without downtime.
