Thanks for the session link. From what I can tell it was advertised as
being about wiki upgrades - something few folk who are not
contributing to infra already are likely to attend, but ended up
actually being about not-having-a-wiki, something which I think is a
broad community question.

What would be needed for infra to revisit the decision to deprecate
the wiki, given the apparent interest from Nova and Swift to have one?
