I'd like to add a paragraph or two in the performance cache FAQ. I clicked the "edit" button, and it wanted some Basic Auth, so I assume I'm not authorized to change it.

So who can change it? how do I get proposed new copy to them?

The specific change is that while it lists LRU, FIFO and other common cache management approaches, it is missing the most fundamental one:
Peter Denning's Working Set model, from his 1969 ACM paper. Its the basis for most good memory management caches.

[or at least those not derived from folks in the RSX-11/VMS/Windows NT family :-) ]
Tenex, Multics, Tops-20, etc. all used Working Sets, and it has better theoretical performance than things like FIFO or LRU

It's editable by anyone who's registered at JavaRanch. So yes, you should be able to edit it.

You'll have to use your javaranch user id and password there.

No; as Jaikiran said, the account info is the same one used for the Saloon. We certainly appreciate contributions to the FAQ!
