Goodness -- wiki.centos.org and wiki.projects.centos.org is 
too hard or better somehow than wiki.centos.org and 
wiki.centos.org/projects/ where './projects' content carries a 
'this content is not as carefully vetted' disclaimer?

The second approach sounds like more of a slam than living in 
a 'projects.' sub-domain to me.

A refactoring of the personal homepages will have to happen in 
any event, and perhaps we should simply have a './personal/' 
in the main wiki and move all such into it ... but this then 
carries the expense of refactoring all the 'at the ./' point 
documentary narrative down a level as well.  ACL errors will 
be harder to avoid as well

By carrying two wiki, we avoid that workload, and can have a 
self-serve model for getting commits in the 'projects.' one, 
and the moderated approach on the vetted one.
