Can't give you a link until I can edit. The change was minor and not 100% necessary so site will survive, but not being able to do it myself doesn't feel good in wiki world.

In thread "Re: SMW documentation ..." back in December Markus Krötzsch
stated:

This was done as part of our start-up phase, so as to not make it into
another (confusing) testing site before even having a basic structure.
We still wonder whether or not we should open it for editing (pro:
people could contribute, its wiki-style; contra: it could again develop
into a ontoworldish collection of semi-official docus, demo pages, and
tests of (partly nonexistent) features that we would have to watch all
day). I normally don't expect the documentation and homepage of an open
source tool to be written by all users, but then there is the wiki-way
... hard question.
- - - - -

For now you can comment and write text on the talk pages of the help
docs on ontoworld.org, or e-mail suggestions here.  Or you can send them
to me privately, or you can file bugs.

My ideal situation would be documentation continues to have limited
editors but users could comment on it *on* the page, like PHP's "User
Contributed Notes" (e.g. http://us3.php.net/manual/en/function.reset.php
) or Adobe's LiveDocs.  I don't know if there's a way to do that in
MediaWiki.

MediaWiki moves user comments to Talk pages which are hard to monitor,
especially when they're 95% disorganized historical comments.  And I
don't know how to allow anyone to edit the semantic-mediawiki.org Talk
pages but continue to restrict the other namespaces.  Hence if you want
to comment in wiki text you have to do it on on ontoworld.org.

Suggestions welcome!
