Description MA 2011-05-01 23:21:40 UTC
As steward, I request the following configuration changes for our private steward wiki (stewardwiki). Please:

* Change the site name (wgSitename) from "Steward" to "Steward Wiki".
* Change the "Wikipedia" and "Wikipedia talk" namespaces to "Project" and "Project talk" respectivelly.
* Set $wgBlockDisablesLogin = true for stewardwiki. 
* Set the project's default language to "English" -- at Special:Preferences there's a strange "steward" language (please remove that too). Users should be able to change the interface language via Special:Preferences at will, of course.

This bug will possibly get more request for configuration changes, but for now this are the first ones. Others may need discussion and I'll list them later, if any. Phillipe is CC'd here in case he wants to object to any change requested here.

Regards.

No objections.
Comment 2 MA 2011-05-01 23:48:21 UTC
Uhm, forgot one thing. As this is a special wiki, I request that bureaucrats be able to add and remove all user rights except steward, checkuser and oversight. Those rights will be added trough meta if needed. 

Thanks.

Update: please enable subpages in all name spaces too. Thank you.
Comment 4 Priyanka Dhanda 2011-05-06 22:49:46 UTC
They should all be done now. Let me know if I missed something.

Nope :) Userrights stuff is pending. Bureaucrats in stewardwiki are suposed to be able to add and remove all userrights from all accounts including themselves. Thanks.

Actually in

'+stewardwiki' => array(
    'bureaucrat' => array( 'accountcreator', 'import', 'transwiki', 'user', 'autoconfirmed', 'ipblock-exempt' ),
    )
'
'autoconfirmed' should be removed (all auto-confirmed userrights are now in the 'user' group).

'accountcreator' is also not very userful.

Also the following should be added to 'wgRemoveGroups' => array(

'+stewardwiki' => array(
    'bureaucrat' => array( 'bureaucrat', 'sysop', 'import', 'transwiki', 'user',  'ipblock-exempt' ),
    )

Sorry to reopen.

Actually easier if we simply add to the bureaucrat group the 'userrights' permission (as the steward group has). We already have that permissions at meta and this is our private wiki so no controversy here I think. Please fix that. The point is to be able to do as much stuff locally there as we can.

Please also create a "Case" and "Archive" (with its respective talk pages) namespaces. Might be useful.

Regards.

I'm not necessarily against this, but there's more to it than just "we already have rights on Meta": transparency.  On Meta-Wiki, all of the changes are publicly logged and people are held accountable.  If userrights was given on a private wiki, a steward could make changes to userrights across Wikimedia and no one else would know what was changed.

No. You are referring to 'userrights-interwiki' which is a different permission and obviously not requested here.

Aha, you're right.  Ignore me. :-)
Comment 12 Priyanka Dhanda 2011-05-20 20:24:48 UTC
Added userrights for bureaucrats and added the namespaces.
