In reply to: Read-only Wiki?
Parent article: RPM -- plans, goals, etc.
Creating an account was the first thing I did. A little more openness of access (even if it means stronger registration validation) would remove the necessity to beg for access, which is usually past my Bothering Point. (Which is part of the reason I have my own wiki in the first place.)
I'm not volunteering to write documentation as such, but I am willing to share the bits and pieces I've written over the years (which, admittedly, isn't much).
Also, a comprehensive update of packager-oriented documentation seems to be the most salient item missing from the list above. My biggest frustrations through the years with RPM haven't been with technical errors but the paucity of specfile documentation, including not only reference-level material but also "best practices" guidelines and such.
