Note that access is controlled in that one needs a Fedora account to
edit the Wiki pages.

I'm inclined to think that we want to have this be editable by account
holders.  Only ones with an interest and knowledge in the subject are
likely to edit it, and Sam and others watch those pages, and he can run
any questions by Chuck and others.

It's good to work with the writer who is working on the content,
especially if he is amendable to being the 'mouth piece.'  

However, if it is easy enough for a subject matter expert to fix it,
that's probably the best way; then Sam or others can clean up the
language, etc.  Aside from the value of community documentation, as we
do with community code, there is the fact that Fedora writers are
volunteers who can use all the help we can get. :)
