For now, yes anybody can create a wiki account and edit pages, thats how 
we do the PBI request list, etc. Right now I think it should be left 
open, unless we get a dedicated team of folks who want to maintain it, 
and approve users for
editing, since I don't want to be handing out keys to it all the time :)

I've updated phpmyfaqs now, I think the registration was disabled 
before. Give it a try again, let me know if you can
register now. I don't think we can marge the two usernames though 
between forums / faqs, two completely different pieces of software, and 
would be a pain to keep that working :)
