Thanks for the heads-up.
Indeed, many wikis had been spammed this way between 9 and 11 August.

Many thanks to user zruset who cleaned up most of the spam commits, and  
the other users who cleaned up too.

We've disabled the spammer user and removed it from ldap.

In case it happens again, let me know.
