Don't all maintainers have to have a git account anyway? :)

Not necessarily, someone might just be a random contributor that spots an error on the documentation and wants to fix it right away. Honestly speaking I'm loving this new look, pages are more readable now, with a new design, easier to maintain and modify by everyone having a Wiki account. Have you ever cloned the gnomeweb-wml repository yourself? It's around 600M in size :-)

When you document how to lock down individual pages to prevent random
people from from editing them, please send the link to the mailing
lists as it is moderately complicated if one has not done it before.

Sure, that can be done this way:

1. Create a page with the following syntax: 'SysadminGroup'
2. add a list of wiki usernames like
3. add the ACL at the beginning of the wiki page you want to lock down:

#acl WikiPageName/SysadminGroup:read,write,delete,admin,revert All:read

Have an awesome day!
