Description Sven Manguard 2011-03-08 05:05:34 UTC
A discussion at has concluded where the outcome is a mandate for the creation of a group that has the right to move files. Admins should be able to grant the group.
Comment 1 Tim Starling 2011-03-08 05:08:40 UTC
Done. Please archive the discussion to a permanent location and link to that location here.
Comment 2 Sven Manguard 2011-03-08 05:10:35 UTC
I hope I did this right. Sorry if I screwed anything up. Thanks to X!, Bryan,
TimStarling, and werdna for all the help. I've been looking forward to this for
a while. 

FYI, this group should only be given movefile. If it were to somehow get
reupload-shared... well the consensus seems to be... horror.

Comment 6 Jeff G. 2011-03-10 00:14:19 UTC
Can we please do the same for testwiki to allow testwiki to better reflect the current state of enwiki, and to allow testing on testwiki before admins on enwiki start granting the right?
Comment 7 Jeff G. 2011-04-01 20:56:02 UTC
The attempt to get a filemover capability at Test Wikipedia (in line with comment 6 above) has sadly had no responses yet.  :(
