I'd say the wiki pages need some attention, unfortunately, it is not
possible for me to log in to make edits, as per policy to prevent
(Now I understand what @Ben Williams meant in his response to my
request to join this SIG).
What is the expected way to join a group and gain edit privileges in the wiki?

Regarding packaging, I'm currently going through the existing
documentation to understand the process.

This is mostly new for me as well, as I'm just starting to learn about
the different modes in existence.
For the time being, I think I'd like to start by updating the
information in the wiki while I get familiar with the packaging
(I build packages locally for my own use, but packaging for the
distribution is a different thing)
I'll ask for help/mentorship when I'm confident enough with it.

Is there any wish-list regarding the wiki pages?
As far as I can tell, there is no standard format to present the
content and each SIG does it in a different way.
Updating the list of packages and maybe using a format like in [1]
could be useful.

In any case, I'd appreciate if somebody in the SIG can point me in the
right direction wrt joining the group and/or getting edit privileges
in the wiki.

Thanks for reading.
