If you open the wiki, on the top line, at the right, it says
'Anonymous', if you click that link a small box opens with a link
'Create account'. If you follow this link it tells you how to sign up
to wiki.

I wouldn't say that wikipedia is up-to-date (or correct), Arch Linux is
a distro and how they allow access is their responsibility. Also there
are mistakes on the Arch Linux Samba pages (in my opinion).

It is easy to update, once you have registered.

As I said, not a good example, they tried to tell me how to pronounce
the name of the town that I have lived in all my life, they got it
wrong, but wouldn't accept it.
