The combined honeypots and re-captcha for anonymous edits seems to
keep all of the spam away from WowProgramming [1], and I've considered
adding a Mollom [2] plugin to Sputnik as well.  Whether or not we
require a login is really a detail to be considered before 'launch',
so we have a bit of time to think about it.

When I get back home today, I'll work on setting up a development git
repository.  The way I develop is by creating a repository that is
used to run the software directly on the web server, with a small
'install' script that lets you launch a development version of the
site on your machine without configuration.  This should allow for
really nice collaboration on the site as a whole.

In short, we'll see what we can come up with.
