I don't know the details, but the openSUSE wiki just got a full re-implementation. In the new version all edits go into a draft that the author can see when logged in, but not others that are not logged in. Then members of the "wiki-team" come along and accept the edits into the wiki for full publication. The goal is not to avoid spambots. It is to ensure content ends up in the right place and that it is properly formatted, etc. They just launched it on July 12, so there is not much experience with it yet. Possibly the wiki powers that be could join the opensuse-wiki mailinglist and track its success and maybe even ask for help to implement something similar on kernelnewbies. fyi: It's not a very high-volume list, so it shouldn't be too hard to lurk. http://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-wiki/2010-07/date.html Greg -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-c-programming" in the body of a message to majordomo@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
