Thanks for taking a look at this problem and helping clean out these junk edits. This is extremely helpful and a fantastic way to contributing to the community.

We clearly do not want the Jython wiki to devolve to junk. But we have limited eyeballs looking at the wiki. (Right now I only look at the wiki myself when I'm consulting some of the design docs we keep there, at least at this point in the dev lifecycle.) Therefore I think moving to a whitelist approach of a trusted user group makes sense. Any objection here? (I should point out that we currently also whitelist this email list for submissions.)

I would have expected FrankWierzbicki and maybe some other logins to be on this list; maybe their logins got removed due to the junk cleanup? In any event, it's easy enough to get a decent initial list together for Adam/Marc - simply respond to this email with your wiki login to add. Presumably we can get this updated readily going forward.

Hi Jython dev

Junk edit traffic has been spiking on the jython wiki for the last month or more. It's a bit of a hassle and doesn't look great when the front page is a dodgy, barely concealed link to some link farm.

Marc Lemburg who looks after the python wiki suggested upgrading to require captchas for users not in a TrustedUser group. Jython doesn't have a high traffic wiki, I scanned the history of a few key pages and got this list of people who have made non junk edits some time ever.


I have no particular official standing with jython but am happy to mail Marc to confirm the upgrade and the trusted user group, it sounds like a good idea to me. A confirmation that is fine from this list / jython dev owners would be good, if no response in a few days I guess I'll take that as no objection. If there is some other owners or list I should ask please point me that way.
