A lot of these wiki changes come from apache committers.
Do you think it is possible to tag these changes so we can skip 
reviewing these for vandalism?

I don't know the inner workings of the moin wiki system but if we 
could separate the changes from committers from the rest it would 
certainly reduce the workload.

Something like:
1) put the "Editor:" field in the mail header
2) make sure only apache committers can create wiki accounts with an 
apache email address.
    - disallow creating account from the website
    - provide a shell script to register a wiki account
      (for users with server access)

This way we can trust the change emails from "Editor:" 
and put those into a separate mail folder.

If we are changing the email header, putting the URL in a mail header 
would also be nice ;-)

Does this sounds realistic?
