The wiki has been described as a tool for *all* GNU maintainers, even though
it's only available to a certain subset of GNU maintainers willing to agree 
to new stipulations that were never part of being a GNU maintainer. 

The wiki's layout is ambiguous in its branding and text. This has been pointed
out and several posts have been made to this list that mistook
as an official channel. Thankfully the ambiguity is being addressed as the 
wiki in some descriptions now identifies itself as the community. 

Until this distinction becomes more clear, pointing out the difference helps
prevent misunderstanding.
