My point is that *I* haven’t reverted changes; *you* have. I don’t plan on rehashing our differences on the content of  that page.

As I stated before, I was unaware of any collisions in the first place; had I been aware of them, I would have waited for you to complete your edits before attempting my own. Thus, I don’t see a need for a policy on this—although I would welcome a more general discussion about wiki policy, since there are definitely differing ideas on what should be in the wiki, how that information should be maintained over time, and how it should coordinate with other forms of documentation.
