Why does a wiki page of a long-over event need to be edited? There does
not seem to be a point to it.
This event is not unique, Google does it every summer since 2005, and each edition resembles the last. Project ideas are of course often reused.
but I can't easily edit it due to an edit restriction on my account
for this page set by Steve McIntyre in revision 18.
The restriction is commented by "Put the page back to where it has
been for a year. Philippe: why are you changing this after a year?". I
answered Steve's question and asked him to revert, but he declined:
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".
"You are wrong" is not a valid reason to give for reverting a change. You have to go deeper. For example, ask yourself "What is wrong in this change?". A possible answer would be "There is an error in this new statement, so the new version has a regression."
There is a good link for you to reread:
...which links to a follow-up you'll want to read.
Some improvements that should be made can be seen in the diff between
revisions 10 and 11. Would someone restore this version or remove the
access restriction so I can handle it?
What does any change in a 2009 gsoc page gain anyone now?
If the idea is revived the next year, the new page can start from a better 2009 page.
