Subject Re: [Proposal] Move Wiki Access Requests somewhere
Date Wed, 05 Oct 2016 15:35:14 GMT
Are most requesters already committers, or no?

If so, then *cough* whimsy tool *cough*.  That's a place we can create
simple AUTH'd request tools that channelize things; even as a front end,
it would ensure the requests have a specific which-wiki, who is the
username, etc. that you don't always get from emails.

Just a crazy idea I can't help with yet.  But agree: finding ways to
reduce non-interesting threads here would help people follow the
interesting discussions or votes.
