[Systems] Wiki is not writable!

I've been doing maintenance on them the past few years.

To be honest I don't see the point anymore.

Ideally people would rescue stuff from them and we could move them to
either w.sl.o or pe.sugarlabs.org which I still maintain.

But, I am about to embark into a project in the rainforest, so it will
be difficult for me to commit extended chunks of time and connectivity.

If you must disable them please keep a backup. I think they are in
read-only mode.

I once wrote a few scripts that that extracted the pages from the old
pe.sugarlabs mediawiki, based on known valid users. I'll try to find
them and share.
