   [[haad]] what about to make a sub-page called e.g. User contributed documentation an give non-developers rw access there while editing other parts(TNF contributed) of wiki will require developers account or possible some sort of bless from a developer.

   [[haad]] This can be work flow for a TNF contributed pages but as I said above this is not acceptable for as normal wiki workflow. We had almost similar discussion about comments on a blog software for NetBSD. There were developers who thought that there will be too many comments and we do not have man power to read/approve them all. After setting blog we have found that we have barely 1-2 comments in every third article. I don;t thing that there will be too many real editors on our wiki from non-developers and therefore we need to make it easy not hard to do.
