I can edit "Mainpage", but I don't think I have
the ability to grant user rights, and anyway,
the way I read the FAQ answer, that's not what
needs to be done. It needs someone who has the
ability to edit the PHP files (someone from SAC?).
Of course the 'real solution' is to contribute
a fix/update/patch to MediWiki, to make the Logo
URL an easily configurable item in LocalSettings.php
(e.g. $wgLogoHref).
