Please see the FAQ before contacting the admins below.

The following is a list of people who, while not having special rights, do have an interest in maintaining the wiki as a whole (organization, conventions, etc.).

Wiki Administration

Please see the FAQ before contacting the admins.

Anything that involves feature requests (i.e., wiki upgrades), bugs that aren't completely upstream or issues with the wiki that don't involve the content would be fine for contacting the Wiki Admins.

System Administration

The system administration is handled by the Debian System Administrators (DSA) Team. The Wiki Admins can also coordinate with DSA on stuff they personally have no access to.

Requests should be discussed with the Wiki Admins before being submitted to the System Administrators.
