We now have access control lists for the wiki, which means we can choose who has access to what pages. At the moment I've set the front page to being non-password protected, along with the main experiments page. I've also made an LVC account, though at the moment this has no different access than the non-password pages.
We should decide how we want the wiki set up. Here are a couple of options:
1) We could make dedicated "public" pages, and have these non-password protected. Then we could have LVC access to basically all or most of the wiki, but without any editing rights. Then we can have our own accounts that can edit. The downside to this approach is that it is unlikely any public pages will ever be updated.
2) Another option is to allow public access to as many pages as we feel comfortable with, but for these to be the same regular pages that make up the wiki. This has some advantages because the public pages get updated with everything else. The downside here is that there will be many frustrating links on public pages that come up with "you do not have enough rights to continue" when you click them.
3) Option 3 is to just have no public access at all. We just keep the whole thing private, and choose what pages to give the LVC account access to. Again LVC doesn't need to have editing rights.
I should point out that the LVC account will only have one password (rather than using albert.einstein accounts) so people will have to know the password to get in.
