Unfortunately, there are two problems with that for me. First, I can't send mail to sourceforge because the reject mail servers without reverse DNS (my home computer is my mail server). Second, my IP is dynamic, so I can't give an IP that will work for more than a couple of days (and I don't really want to have to give them a new IP every time that I want to edit the wiki).

So, while I realize that wikis are generally for distributed editing (I've even setup a few of my own and for others), I cannot edit this one now, and I don't feel like jumping through the hoops necessary to be able to edit it.

I agree with this. I used to edit the Wiki before it was restricted due to spam problems, but since then, I guess it wasn't ever worth it to me to get edit permission. Apparently I'm not the only one for whom that was a barrier to participation. I think it has unfortunately diminished the value of the wiki because it has reduced participation. Does anyone out there know what other wikis have done to encourage participation while keeping the undesirables out? It seems like some sort of a user/password system might be better than doing it by IP address--then it would be possible for a user to log in from different computers without getting every IP enabled individually.
