Perhaps the ACLs just have to be re-opened now that we're using mediawiki?
Don't think that's wise.
Instead drop them completely; give everyone again a chance to *easily*
participate everywhere in Fedora without being in committees; those
should watch and coordinate/decide only if needed. IOW: it's a wiki, we
should use it like one!
But from older discussions I'm well aware that you guys don't want to
that. I think that's totally stupid(¹), but that's just my option. Thus
move everything out of Packaging/ that is meant to be modified for
ordinary packagers; that will avoid a lot of confusion, as it'll be
crystal clear for everyone then that Packaging/ is completely maintained
by the Packaging Committee.
(¹) note "that"; the packaging committee members are highly skilled
people and I think they are doing a lot of good work; I just don't like
the ACLs and the bureaucracy which is needed to get something improved;
that is not specific to the Packaging Committee and has become a general
problem in Fedora; I'm well aware that some of that is my fault from the
days when I was more active/in FESCo
