In other fields we notice that it is important to involve and empower 
new volunteers quickly and easily. For example, a new documentation 
volunteer would now have the problem that he needs a wiki account 
created (and he needs someone to do it, since registration is currently 
disabled) and then a welcome message on what to do, and then a list of 

If the more active people here could have all necessary privileges to 
answer prospective volunteers with a "Welcome, we created a wiki account 
for you, a couple of small tasks that you can do to start are X and Y", 
this would be much more effective.

to give you (Keith, or other active volunteers who want to take care of 
this) the necessary privileges.
