The only sysadmin (Harald) doesn't yet have time to setup some anti-spam
mechanisms. I've volunteered as a second sysadmin but Harald hasn't had
time to do some things that are needed before he can add me to the team.
Making the wiki read-only is a stop-gap measure until some anti-spam
stuff can be setup and all the spam pages removed by myself or Harald.
