I've been through this on a number of wikis external to grass,
email + captcha protected account generation and all. all those
hours of cleanup I will never get back, and for me that wasted
time is a huge motivation killer.

why aren't we using the stock debian version of mediawiki, which
is known to work and tested by many thousands using the same
config? (yay pkg-stable software versions and the debian bug
tracker knowledge base)

related// are there any plans to link with the core OSGeo LDAP
login, so that people don't need multiple accounts?
