can you please take at look at the email below. Thanks

Margherita: please file a trac ticket, under the Wiki component,
with the name of the user who's pending approval.

Also mention if you're willing to be taking care of approving
those requests as it'd be probably the best way now.

I'm looking forward to the day we'll integrate the Wiki
with our LDAP database, to reduce the complexity of
"signin up to OSGeo" (https://trac.osgeo.org/osgeo/ticket/165)

Dear Julia,

the creation of a new account for the wiki now requires the approval of
OSGeo-SaC (now reading in cc). Please let them know your username.
