BTW, I would really like to remove the bottleneck / single point of
failure for account creation. I asked on the infrastructure mailing
list if we could setup a ticketing system (or wiki admin mailing list
or something) and have a signup requests be handled by a number of
wiki admins. I didn't really get a response that time. Would be really
nice if we could get something better set up.

There is still some breakage (file uploads are misplaced, etc) and we are not _quite_ ready to transition. However, it is certainly ready for testing. Any issues that are discovered can be reported in the #haskell-infrastructure irc channel on freenode, or via email to admin at haskell.org.
