We definitely need the GPG key for the Fedora account, which causes you
to do the CLA, and grants Wiki, CVS, etc.
What would be nice, and I have no idea if it is feasible, is to have a
route to just-Wiki that is almost like a click-through CLA. But is that
advisable? Enforceable? How do you prove that the person who agreed to
the CLA is anyone in particular? It could have been a friend, "Just
click through this, you need that to get the EditGroup permissions."
Click-throughs are passive, people can do them without thought. The
sign-the-CLA-with-GPG is active.
