Due to extreme amounts of spam in the past, the Wiki is locked down so 
you need to apply for rights.  You need to have a Launchpad account and 
then apply to join the wiki editors team - 
https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-wiki-editors - once added there you can 
create your application page.

However, for PPU rights, those get processed by the Developer Membership 
Board, and you have to abide by the DMB schedule.  The DMB may want to 
see sustained contributions as well for the package.
