The Cookbook is not a separate wiki, it's part of the SciPy wiki

The external appearance is due to the Sinorca4Moin theme

The access control is governed by acl_rights_before and
acl_rights_default settings in wikiconfig.py  See

You are welcome to write me directly if you feel the topic is not
appropriate for the entire list.
