There are 4 kinds of roles. Someone can handle multiple roles:
Contributors : That's anyone who contribute to the wiki.
All pages are editable by everyone logged in (except the wiki's built-in base pages that are immutable).
Translators : The Wiki translators (see DebianWiki/TranslationCoordination) are like contributors
Wiki administrators : The member of the group wikiadm can modify the wiki configuration files (and any arbitrary file). (members: see DebianWiki/Contact).
Also, DSA team manages the machine hosting the wiki.
- Keep the wiki clean, consistent, coordinate structural changes... keep it usable !

Remove spam and spammers
Watch RecentChanges for spam and when you find some, login to the wiki server and perform the following steps:
$ PATH=$PATH:/srv/wiki.debian.org/bin $ kill-spammer "Some user" $ touch /srv/wiki.debian.org/bin/moin.wsgi $ whois 126.96.36.199 $ mail email@example.com
Contacting the abuse address for the IP address is a good idea but is optional.
See DebianWiki pages.

licensing stuff? ikiwiki? more work on moin? Add tracking for a core set of pages to get them reviewed regularly? Sledge has a Category tracking script that might help.
