Hmm, not just asking, but apparently requiring certain volunteers to sign
them. It's unclear which volunteers are and are not exempt from this
requirement. For example, it seems that Bugzilla administrators are now
required to have signed an NDA, but OTRS volunteers and wiki
administrators are not. Wikimedia stewards... it's unclear, as it is for
many other user volunteer groups (people with access to rt.wikimedia.org,
shell users, et al.).

I suppose we should begin to expand the page on Meta-Wiki. Cunningham's
Law will kick in, as necessary.
