In recent years (I noticed this since about 2013), the Python wiki does
not offer an “Edit” function when I am logged in; every page presents
“Immutable Page” instead.

That has prevented me from improving pages I've wanted to. And no, I
haven't gone to the effort of constructing a bug report for this.
Perhaps the same is true for many other logged-in users as well?
