This is the right place!

This list, despite its low volume, is monitored by many knowledgeable
Wikka folks.  We also have an IRC channel on freenode (#wikka) that
is frequented by a couple of devs throughout the day (wherever your
day might be).

So you want to hide the entire wiki from the public, or just make the
entire wiki read-only?

If the former, I would suggest htpasswd or htdigest.  If the latter,
you'll need to modify the default ACLs in wikka.config.php to reflect
a "+" for write and "*" for read.  Depending upon the version you're
running, these should be the defaults when you install.
