Mainly this one

We know, and there is a bug and a project for that. Don't get me wrong,
I do not mind to have it in the wiki for the time being ( or later ) and
that's the simplest solution. But I do mind that the information there
is incorrect, and that the person who should (IMHO) take care of keeping
it accurate do not know that it should be done.

For example of wrong info, I was elected deputy for packagers ( as
written on https://wiki.mageia.org/en/Packaging , among others ), and
not listed as such. There is no representative for sysadmin team
( should be boklm, iirc, even if the page for sysadmin team was not
filled, but I took care of gettin ). 

I do not care that people do errors, that happens, but we should aim for
accuracy if we want to have it as reference.

Since no one asked me for the information, I just thought it was not a
priority ( but I can reorganize, it would just require to put some
others thing that people have been asking to the end of the list ).

Besides, the information is public since it was sent to various mls, and
have been discussed in meeting, on irc. So there is a equal right to
access the information, just not a practical one.
