This is part of a piece I sent this to Karsten earlier today:

Historically, to get rights on the CentOS wiki, one had to
have a:
        - have subscribed to the -docs ML
        - registered with CamelCase wikiname
        - optionally set up a homepage
                (doing so required asking for limited rights
                to do so in that sub-space on the -docs ML)
        - discuss on the -docs ML, the intended content,
                optionally putting a preview below the
                personal homepage in the hierarchy
        - one point being it was not interesting to simply
                parrot RH doco, or replicate content elsewhere,
                but rather to document deviations between CentOS
                and RHEL

as there were some deviation by design or by necessity: 
updater driven -- early days yum not RHN, artwork, license
