[Haskell-cafe] Wiki user accounts

I'm hearing reports of people having difficulty obtaining accounts on
the Haskell wiki, without which it is impossible to make edits.
Currently, account creation is disabled as an anti-spam measure, and the
idea is for people to mail the admin and request an account. If this is
to work, accounts need to be granted reasonably quickly - so far, I'm
aware of a case where after 4 days there has been no response.

This is particularly problematic for Anglohaskell, as signups and the
like are via the wiki page - as a temporary workaround, I'll (and anyone
else willing to lend a hand who already has an account) have to make
edits on others' behalf, which is a serious inconvenience for both
myself and attendees, as well as something of a barrier to entry.

What's going on, and how can we speed things up?
