I don't actually think this is necessary. Over at httpd we manage just
fine with keeping our wiki gardened and useful without assuming that
the wiki admins are involved or interested in the primary -dev list.
(-dev lists can be pretty overwhelming at times!)

Granted, we have a -docs list there that we don't have here, but I
think as long as some of the -dev folk are on the wiki team, there's
no need for all of the wiki team to be on -dev.

I think having an ICLA on file would be useful for admins; I don't
know that it's *necessary*, per se, but I'd definitely regard that
level of work as a "contribution", and so it's nice to have :-) It
also makes the process quicker/easier if we later vote any of these
folk in as committers.
