And I didn't write it. My name appears at the bottom of the current
article because I happened to make the last (probably very minor) edit
to the old FAQ Wizard page before it was moved to the new wiki.

Also, the old FAQ Wizard <http://www.python.org/cgi-bin/faqw-mm.py> now
redirects to the new wiki so it is not possible to see the edit
history of the old page to know who did write it.

The FAQ is a wiki. You are free to create an account, log in and edit
the page.
