Thing is, for the swiki it *isn't* my login credentials - just the page specific (though usually the defaults that we publish on the page that explains how to use the swiki) values, so I'm not certain it is a worry. Certainly, using https in general is a good thing from what I understand. However. it seems like a not-quite-right thing to demand a log-in just for going to the edit page; surely the spirit of the swiki would be to request the password (only) when actually asking to save a new version? And I freely admit I have no idea how or whether that can actually be done.
