Updated

You will convert a Wordpress blog and website (xaprb.com) with nearly 1000 posts to Octopress. I will provide the following: * A Github repository with a default Octopress installation and theme. * The text of the blog posts, in Markdown format. * The images and other linked assets such as PDFs. * A mysqldump export of the entire Wordpress blog. * All other (non-Wordpress) site content. There are several static pages and images. You will then do the following: * Customize Octopress's theme slightly to look more like the existing blog. It need not look exactly like it, but I would like to add a header image. * Review the content of all of the blog posts for formatting, and fix any issues. I have noticed that the default export format of the plugin I used to convert to Markdown causes some inlined or floated images to float badly. You can simply remove inlining and floating. I have also noticed that some blockquote or code sections may have wrong formatting. * Convert static content (the pages not hosted in Wordpress) to Markdown and include it in the Octopress content. * Submit a pull request to the Github repository with the changes. The desired end goal is that the entire site and all its content (currently a combination of static content and Wordpress-managed content) will be managed entirely in Octopress, and all URLs will remain the same so no links will break. However, the goal does not include matching the look-and-feel entirely; I regard this as a redesign as well as a conversion. If I have omitted any requirements, or anything is unclear, please let me know. I am not sure how much work is involved, so please include estimates in your proposals.
