Only historical reasons. Up until a few months ago, the PSF wiki
was only accessible to PSF members, so the second link was not
public. We subsequently changed the default on the
PSF wiki to readable by everyone (see attached email).

Dear Members,

I have now implemented the changes listed below. If you find pages
which should not be open to the general public or ones which should
be, please let me know.

Many PSF wiki pages will now be word readable and editable by
all PSF members with an account. As per the resolution, only
PSF voting members will get an account (it's easy to become voting
member though; see

Please see the front page for additional details:
