Why does a wiki page of a long-over event need to be edited? There does
not seem to be a point to it.

First, Sledge is a gsoc admin for debian, so his opinion does count
double too. Second, he gives a pretty good reasoning why he did it: Your
changes arent welcome. Simple as that, its a pretty easy "Go
elsewhere, you are wrong here". 

There is a good link for you to reread:

What does any change in a 2009 gsoc page gain anyone now?
(And besides, "improvements" is a very biased opinion. Other people
stated that its worse with it.
