Yes, this is broken.  The wiki should be public to editing, at the very
least in every namespace but the main one.  (And probably there too.  We
know how to keep publicly editable websites looking shiny :)

To return to the original thread, and to Anne's comments:

The Budget page hasn't been edited since 2009 until now; it's good to see
that changing.   [If the wmfwiki were opened to collaborative updates, it
would be fine to replace it with a cross-wiki redirect.  But for now that's
not possible.]
