Contributing to the wiki
To help avoid spam, in common with many other ASF wikis, the Tika wiki is only editable by known accounts.
If you would like to help out with the Tika wiki, add a new page, or work on an existing one, please first create a wiki account. With that done, drop an email to the user list or the dev list with your wiki username asking for access, and generally within a few hours you'll be able to edit away from then on!
