Reason: This article had a "Workflow" section which must be reinstated with an explanation of what the team does, with links to related guidelines and procedures. (Discuss in ArchWiki talk:Maintenance Team#)

The Maintenance Team is ArchWiki's official group of users whose goal is supervising and fixing the edits that are made every day to the articles in the wiki.


Maintainers belong to a particular group of wiki users with special rights. Administrators and bureaucrats are maintainers with higher access levels, see ArchWiki:Access levels and roles.

All members of the Maintenance Team provide ways to contact them if you desire so. Nevertheless, prefer using the discussion tab above each page for page-specific comments.

Use ArchWiki talk:Maintenance Team for generic remarks or if you require assistance from the Maintenance Team, or to discuss wiki organization, conventions, etc. To contact the ArchWiki administrators in matters that cannot be discussed publicly (e.g. regarding issues about user accounts), send an email from the wiki interface to all wiki administrators by using Special:EmailUser/WikiSysop (this method allows making reasonable assumptions about the link between the username and email address).

How to join

Official maintainers are usually chosen by the administrators among the most active and collaborative users of the wiki, and personally invited to participate in the team. You can also explicitly present yourself as a candidate by contacting one of the administrators.

Common requisites for becoming a maintainer are:

  • Familiarity with community and wiki guidelines; will to collaborate and discuss with the other team members.
  • Some free time and the commitment to contribute regularly enough.
  • Patience, accuracy and tidiness.
  • Experience in wiki editing and good knowledge of wiki syntax.
  • Good knowledge of the structure of the ArchWiki and its style rules.
  • Sufficient knowledge of Arch Linux and the subjects treated in the articles, or willingness to do some research or discuss with the edits' authors when fixing content-related issues.

If you are interested in joining the team, you can start making yourself visible to the community by helping with the common tasks, in particular help out with patrolling and contributing to the discussions that take place in the various talk pages.

New members get announced in the ArchWiki:News.

Once elected, members should add their username to the table above and also add a special tag in their user page: [[ArchWiki:Maintainers|ArchWiki Maintainer]].
