If you are considering this, please take into account that GitHub doesn't allow
to configure separate access lists for repository and wiki. There are only two

1) wiki can be edited by any GitHub user
2) wiki can be edited by people who have write access to repo (i.e. right to make
unreviewed push to any branch, as there are no "partial access" settings)

It's not possible to have a separate list of "contributors" without push right as
we do now.

Of course, this can be worked around via setting up wiki in a different repository
with different access list.
