We will have to either add something to the Style Guide or create a  
new wiki page outlining proper editing and other rules we should  
promote (no spam, etc).  I think everyone who has contributed to the  
wiki is guilty to varying degrees on using 'minor' edits for other  
purposes (small additions, etc).
