registration is not closed, so the wiki is not.
I agree that the login can make problem for some peoples, but

* the wiki is Novells, so what ever you say his content is
under Novells responsability.

* the wiki is _not_ in my opinion of the same wide open
nature of wikipedia.

openSUSE is mostly prone to the development of the SUSE
Linux distribution. It's mainly a community of developpers,
beta testers, writers... people who wants to be active for
SUSE Linux.

Asking them to register (and with no register filtering) is
a _yet very small_ mean to verify they level of involvement.
Do we need people not even able to register? what are they
to do is anybody asks them to get a bug to bugzilla?

well my thinking is not closed on this point, these are just
a mere present opinion that may change :-)
