We're definitely open to contributors but we don't use a CMS and
despite using ikiwiki the web site is also not a wiki.  SPI's web site
is a static web site generated with ikiwiki from Markdown.  You also
cannot edit directly, for example, but contributions are
welcome.  Same with SPI.  The git repository is available (there's a
link from the front page) and you're welcome to send patches or pull
requests.  The webmaster email is also displayed for those wanting to
provide feedback.

If someone makes sustained contributions, I'm sure we'd be happy to
give direct access to the git repo.
