Description Robin Pepermans (SPQRobin) 2008-01-12 15:42:27 UTC
Please change the Bugzilla component "Site requests" to "Site creation requests",
because there are a lot of shell requests from Wikimedia communities, which is not the same.
Comment 1 JeLuF 2008-01-17 23:06:53 UTC
There's no need for a "site creation" and a "site deletion" component. It's perfectly fine to use "site requests" for all kind of requests for the Wikimedia Foundation sites.
Comment 2 Robin Pepermans (SPQRobin) 2008-01-18 18:34:56 UTC
Maybe you are right that creations and closings could be in the same component, but we should find a way to prevent people from using "Site requests" for requests of Wikimedia communities. Unless you find a way for this, I would still propose to change these components.
Comment 3 JeLuF 2008-01-18 19:01:22 UTC
But that's exactly what 'site requests' is for:

Site requests
Requests for config changes for the sites hosted by the Wikimedia Foundation.
Comment 4 Robin Pepermans (SPQRobin) 2008-01-18 19:06:21 UTC
Hmm, in that case this is changed very recently. At the time I opened this bug, it was for new wikis. 

So I'm changing the request to: Add "Site creations and closings" component.
Reopening for the second time.
Comment 5 JeLuF 2008-01-18 19:56:16 UTC
You did not yet explain *why* you need a special component for this. Why is the 'site request' component not good enough for close/create requests?
Comment 6 Robin Pepermans (SPQRobin) 2008-01-18 20:10:22 UTC
1) On all bugs there is a "Assigned To" part of the email address where the bug goes to. Most bugs goes to wikibugs-l. My intention is to request (when this bug is done) a mailing list like the current wikibugs-l where all site creation/closing requests should go to. My previous bug about this was bug 12256 but closed because it were too different requests in one bug.

2) A config change is still something really different than a bug for a new wiki or closing a wiki.
Comment 7 Brion Vibber 2008-08-11 23:14:46 UTC
Currently the same people would handle both requests, and while doing the same operations; there's no compelling reason to create a separate category.
