Well, that's good; we probably wouldn't want any secret Air Force documents
being picked over by prying eyes. ;)
Do you actually need to restrict editing of specific pages (for which you
could always use standard protection), or would it be enough to just require
users to log in to edit pages? (You could then then restrict account
creation to administrators or registered users.) Take a look at
if that would suffice. If
you needed more page-per-page controls, you could use namespace permissions,
or try something like
don't know if it works for 1.9).
If you want to go with the PageSecurity extension, then you should probably
contact its author.

Is there any word on when PageSecurity will work
with MediaWiki 1.9? I
now have a need for the extension, but I've already upgraded my wiki.
The name alone implies this is one of those wonderful
false-sense-of-security extensions that will never fully work with
MediaWiki and should not be trusted to secure data, ever. At all.
not looking to protect data, just set permissions on edit
pages, which PageSecurity is more than adequate for. If you have a
better way, please let me know. Otherwise, I was just trying to get
feedback on timing - since I've seen the author post on this list.
