I disagree with this closure. The bug remains unfixed.

That is not the page to which the bug report referred.
It's not true to claim the need to register with a
particular browser security/privacy setting is described on
http://wiki.debian.org/BashCommands - and following the obvious
link HelpContents doesn't mention it, nor does HelpOnEditing.
It seems unreasonable to expect new users not to believe the
ImmutablePage notice and correctly guess that FrontPage will
tells them how to edit.

(Also, HelpForBeginners and FrontPage both link to WhyWikiWorks,
which includes implicit arguments against registration requirement.)

Please would you fix this bug by correcting wiki.debian.org's
side bar ImmutablePage message, or by removing the lock-out?
I can see where the wiki program source code comes from, but
not where to diff against or install patches.
