We should definitely require users to be logged in if we don't already. I
thought we already had, as I needed to register quite some time ago so I could
edit pages.  Maybe this has changed with package upgrades and whatnot.  I'd
definitely like to see something where an e-mail address is required to be
supplied and verified on mediawiki as well as on trac, as well as any other
useful but not too invasive anti-spam measures we can get working.
