Do you mean technically use it or more as in policy? Technically it is
quite easy, you go to the wiki where you want to import, go to the
page Special:Import, and you do some selections and click on import.
Maybe you have to use Special:ExpandTemplates to bring over the
templates looking all right.
On policy: there has been a good discussion on this very list some
time ago about the use of the foundationwiki. There were also
mentionings of moving away pages that are not totally necessarily,
such as outdated non-finished reports, failed projects. I think we
should focus on clear definitions of what shoudl stay. I think at
least should stay:
*Bylaws and other formal documents of the WMF
*Static information pages (who's who in the board and on employees)
*Official press releases
*List of all acknowledged wiki's, chapters etc.
*Benefactors / Sponsors
and possibly translations of these
So these should be moved to meta at least:
*News as in non-official press releases
*Pages like [[It is forbidden to take pictures !/Ru]]

Thank you for instruction! I'll try later. Or other guys.
As for content, I appreciate you to bring it up. We need to discuss
what it publishes and not closely. Perhaps here or on meta.
I understand it is in responsible of Promocom (Elian & Akl) and
officers in some cases. We Transcom are in responsible of its
translation after the content is determined. As community vote for
deletion, a sysop per se isn't a person who determines what survive.
Generally I love to join discussion, not to use granted right only in
my discretion unless it's aparently of bureaucracy and waste of time.
