[EP-tech] Re: Community Contribution Day

Hi Adam,

I know that I have tried to go and update the wiki at one point, but I
couldn¹t make an account to do so. I assumed only staff were allowed to
update things and left it.
How does one go about getting access to edit the wiki?
I¹m very happy to share everything I do/learn on our own repository.
