A standard log analyzer on the webserver should work.  Several
sites, including pmwiki.org, have been using Google Analytics

Also, I haven't used it myself, but some people have reported
success with http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/TotalCounter .

PmWiki already maintains a history of the IP addresses for each
edit; there's not really a built-in feature to get at this information
except through the page history.  Try looking at a page's
history, and hover the mouse pointer over an author's name to
see the IP address.

Are you asking for a "draft" capability (i.e., editing pages before
publishing them) or for the ability to have separate discussion
