Wikimedia has migrated from Bugzilla to Phabricator. Bug reports should be created and updated in Wikimedia Phabricator instead. Please create an account in Phabricator and add your Bugzilla email address to it.
Wikimedia Bugzilla is read-only. If you try to edit or create any bug report in Bugzilla you will be shown an intentional error message.
In order to access the Phabricator task corresponding to a Bugzilla report, just remove "static-" from its URL.
You could still run searches in Bugzilla or access your list of votes but bug reports will obviously not be up-to-date in Bugzilla.

Description Kat 2006-03-22 05:43:59 UTC
Warn bureaucrats when sysopping a user without an email address; many wikis
strongly encourage all admins to be reachable by email or to have email
registered so that lost sysop passwords may be retrieved -- this would serve as
a reminder.

Component of both the special pages (built-in user rights page) and extensions
(Wikimedia's custom makesysop extension).

Not all of them, though, so this should be configurable if introduced in core.
