Hi Arlen. As I explained to you in a private email to try and avoid 
noise to the full list, we don't just make changes because one person 
decides we should. It needs to go through the docs team, the UI team, 
the lead devs, etc. Who has FTP access is not the immediate issue, it's 
that the change you want to make needs to go through the right channels 
to be discussed and approved, and ONLY THEN would someone with ftp 
access think about making a change, under official direction. Just 
because it is a wiki doesn't mean it's a total free-for-all.

Also, please don't insult the tireless volunteers who work diligently on 
the Codex. We all know we have lots of room for improvement, but stating 
that no one cares the way you do is just an unprofessional slap in the 
face, and attitude that is not especially welcome given that most of the 
volunteers are busy professionals who give their time out of love for 

Thanks, Jane
