None of the admins appear to have responded to the earlier thread
on this list, so I appear to be the only dude fiddling with the SF
account. I checked my permissions again (I'm not an owner or
admin) and I managed to SSH into SF and swap the current wiki with
a new page. It redirects to your page for now. I will e-mail the
admins to see if they respond; perhaps it is better if they pass
admin status to you or something. Maybe this community doesn't
have enough resources to maintain a vibrant wiki on the long run.

Worse, Wikipedia links to there... :-(

So I can login or copy via SSH for now. If anyone wants to rustle
something up for that site, then please post here on this list.
Otherwise, I will make a snapshot of the wiki site, send it to
Jeff Kingston, then set up a basic page there or disable it.

Also, the "Web Site" link on the SF summary page points to a dead
page, and I think I don't have permissions to fix that, so I hope
I can get one of the admins to respond. At worst, I suppose we can
request SF to revert ownership to Jeff...
