Description Nemo 2009-04-08 00:06:02 UTC
When a page is imported on Wiktionary, importers have to move the page to lowercase (see bug 6808, bug 9943) – one action, two edits –, and then delete or request deletion of the redirect – one more action –: three actions instead of one, triple work for importers who are not sysops. 
To avoid this, please add the "suppressredirect" right to importers and transwiki importers groups, at least on it.wiktionary if possible (see consensus e.g. at the end of the linked discussion), but I'm sure that all communities would love that. It is a completely harmless right if given to quite trusted users as importers are, and it can be very useful. 
Comment 1 Roan Kattouw 2009-04-08 09:57:45 UTC
Removing depencencies: although bug 6808 and bug 9943 are related, they neither depend on or block this bug.
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2009-05-28 18:44:52 UTC
Seems sensible.
Comment 3 JeLuF 2009-06-06 12:28:57 UTC

    'itwiktionary' => array(
        'user' => array( 'upload' => false ),
        'autoconfirmed' => array( 'patrol' => true, 'upload' => false ),
        'sysop' => array( 'upload' => true ),
        'patroller' => array( 'patrol' => true, 'autopatrol' => true, 'rollback' => true ),
        'autopatroller' => array( 'autopatrol' => true ),
        'import' => array( 'suppressredirect' => true, ),
        'transwiki' => array( 'suppressredirect' => true, ),
