	Patch pushed.

	new-wiki.us.netrek.org - CNAME'd to one of my vps hosts.

	It's currently set as "netrek-dev.gerdesas.com" with 2
	ServerAlias entries pointing to "new-wiki.us.netrek.org" and
	"wiki.netrek.org" to make that change more transparent with
	less human intervention required.

	Until the zone patch is picked up it's reachable as:


	After the patch is pickled up it will be reachable as that url
	and also:

	Accounts are set to require confirmation before any
	editing is permitted.  Anonymous users are not permitted to
	edit content; they must be logged in and confirmed.

	Project primaries will be given administrative access once
	they've created and confirmed their accounts and mailed me
	(or one of the other primaries) their wiki login.

	Have at it :)

	I think I need to enable image uploads, but other than that it
	should be good to go.  Hmm, now that I think about it, do we
	*need* image upload ability?  I will leave it disabled for now
	until it's determined we need it.  It can be trivially enabled
	if it's required and after ImageMagick is installed for
	thumbnail management.

	Speaking of images, I have the wiki logo set as a random 
	png I saw on netrek.org - it needs a better logo.  If someone
	wants to provide one that'd be great.  Send me the image file
	or a URL to get it from and I will add it.

	If anyone spots any problems with configuration or any other
	issues please let me know.
