Hi @aspiers, thanks for bringing this up.
Yes, we have restricted edit access and the current plan is to disable it completely after a while, once all content has been migrated to the handbook.
I’m really sorry you had to find out like that, once we restricted it I had plans to put up a warning with an explanation but I forgot, apologies for that.
Now, why this? Security. We have many repos in our organization, to a point where some ill intentioned individual could update any wiki and put any information which would put our users at risk. This is not a maybe, we got it reported via our HackerOne account, and thankfully the reporter left a harmless message.
Where do we go from here? Not too long ago we started to migrate all our (scattered) documentation into a central place, The Jitsi Handbook: https://jitsi.github.io/handbook/docs/intro
It’s of course open source, and uses Markdown just like the wiki or our previous docs. The only change going forward is that changes to it need to be made as a pull request. I understand this makes the process a bit slower, but we try our best to be fast with reviews and the site is auto updated with a CI so it takes no time for the new xo tent to be available once merged.
I understand this is a bit more work than the wiki but unfortunately not everyone has good intentions such as yourself, and we need to make sure the project documentation passes some scrutiny. I hope you can see why we went on this direction.
I’ll make sure to update the wiki with a big bold note and start migrating the content to the handbook ASAP. Again, apologies for not having done this earlier.
