I once wrote: "Freedom is not having to ask permission". The wiki has
this great feature called version control. Because of the hugely
increased wiki activity this last week, it's been tough to track the
Recent changes page (a big shout out especially to Thomas Waelti who has
been a Ninja Wiki Warrior the past few days), but rest assured - if you
do something very bad, someone will notice, and we can roll back or
correct your changes. It's likely that we'll lose bits of the baby with
the bathwater doing a deep clean, but baby bits grow back, usually.

So, to answer your question, no, please don't ask for permission to do
bigger changes, but if you feel the need, do let me know once they're done.

What's that expression? "It's easier to ask for forgiveness than to get
permission". I'm not suggesting that people go wild - use your
judgement, and try to learn from your mistakes :)
