[maemo-developers] [maemo-developers] spam at maemo wiki

Every now and then we have some nasty "edits" at maemo's wiki. To avoid
this I have been thinking to disable anonymous edits till we have a
solution which:
-either detects spam and reverts a page if necessary, or
-provides a challenge-response test (captcha [1]) before submitting a
page (Thanks "Adam L" for proposing it)

Disabling anonymous edits would be temporary only, since it is against
the idea of the wikis.

Before doing anything I would be interested in your opinion. Does
somebody have an idea which could be easily integrated into moinmoin
(the wiki engine maemo.org uses)? Or shall we just leave the situation
as is and revert the pages manually?

I would appreciate your thoughts and comments on this issue.
