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

Beware that the group wiki page name *must* end in 'Group'.  Otherwise,
you can get an immutable wiki page that nobody can edit [1] (only a
sysadmin, Andrea: it would be great if you could delete it :-).

Tip from someone who learned that in the hard way (of course, I followed
the standard procedure of reading the documentation [2,3] afterwards :-)
