Hi all,

our wiki [1] was misused for disseminating spam; for that reason, I have 
asked W3C staff to "raise the fences" a bit, i.e. to tighten security 
protection. The new scheme is as follows:

* Everyone can read pages
* Only registered users can edit pages
* Everyone can register as a user

That scheme could of course still be abused; we will see if that is the 

So in short: You must create a login by clicking on the "login" button 
[1], then you can edit the wiki pages.

Here. Now. Real, first-person experience. Am I there to witness it?
