Dear all,

as you may have realized, there has been a change in the editorial
policy of the ESW wiki at W3C. The reason is that, unfortunately, W3C
had to fight off Wiki page spamming repeatedly.

The current policy is as follows: only people listed in the


can edit pages on ESW. If you are not yet listed on that page, you
should ask somebody in that group to add you to that page; from that
point on you have an editing right to all esw pages (including this
'bootstrap editors' group page) as before. The group was initially
populated with everybody who'd made a non-spam edit in (approx) the
month of May 2009.

Apologies for the somewhat abrupt change in policy, but the spam issue
became really painful...
