I think it's good to be concerned with what goes on which wiki right now
because, as both Joe Harrington and Fernando have pointed out, we
*don't* want our wiki to grow by accretion into an unusable blob. The
main point, which I agree with, is that a little bit of work on
structuring the wiki(s) now can save a lot of pain later.

We did envision a separation between the user (newbie) -friendly welcome
site/wiki now played by MoinMoin and the developer "hard hat zone" wiki
played by Trac. And I think the content you wrote at
http://projects.scipy.org/scipy/numpy/wiki/ZeroRankArray definitely
falls into the hard hat category, so I think its fine to put there.
(Maybe once the dust has settled, though, this would be good to write a
mini-tutorial in the cookbook about.)

I did make a link to the Trac instances and the svn repositories from
http://new.scipy.org/Wiki/Developer_Zone . Certainly some more text on
that page to explain the multi-wiki separation -- I just haven't had
time to do it.

>I don't have access to
Why do you say that? What happens when you try to login? (In fact, I
think you should be able to edit pages without even logging in.) Let me
know if you still think you don't have access -- I will definitely fix
it ASAP.
