Hi Leo,

User creation isn't publicly available to avoid spam : only an existing
user can create a new account. This being said, wiki isn't the preferred
way to expose documentation since there's no review and things ultimately
bitrot. Page [0] you want to update is a perfect example of the mess :
not only it contains irrelevant data but also stuff that is definitely
wrong (e.g. 'compat' cpu property was deprecated in QEMU 5.0 and will
be removed in QEMU 6.0).

Ideally we'd want everything to be in the main QEMU doc and don't
even need a wiki.

On the PowerPC front, the most up-to-date docs are in the QEMU tree:


So I don't know exactly what changes you had in mind, but maybe first
consider to update the main documentation.

On my side, I think I want do ditch all the current content and just put
links to https://qemu.readthedocs.io/en/latest/ instead. I can take care
of that, in which case you wouldn't need an account.




Cedric reported that we also have a page for non-pseries


I'm Cc'ing some regular contributors for those platforms so
they can  evaluate the bitrotting status of this wiki.
