[kde-community] Wikis uneditable

Hi all,

Until further notice, all wikis hosted under KDE.org have been
rendered uneditable by everyone except members of the Identity group
"web-admins".

Unfortunately it seems bots (or a human sweatshop) have completely
automated the login (via OpenID/Identity none the less) and abusive
editing of many of our wikis.

This appears to be an issue being experienced by other Mediawiki
installations elsewhere as well.

At some point we may reinvestigate restoring editing rights to a more
limited number of users, but until then our wikis will remain closed
to editing.

If necessary, we may need to consider migration to alternative Wiki software.

Regards,
Ben Cooksley
KDE Sysadmin
