Following a Board of Trustees resolution and a discussion between the Committee's members during its meeting in Berlin to change the name of the Committee, I would like to ask to rename its internal wiki (<http://chapcom.wikimedia.org>) from "chapcomwiki" to "affcomwiki" (<http://affcom.wikimedia.org>).
I know that it's rather difficult to rename wikis at the moment, and that this might take some time, so I am filling the bug even before the formal change of the name (which would be done through another Board resolution).
And, of course, this is merely a technical request, as there is consensus among the ChapCom/AffCom members to move the wiki to the new name.

Thanks in advance,

Please tell us informed when you've the consensus.
Sorry? There is no need for a consensus here, the Committee's wiki is a private one, limited only to its members and advisers.
We woud like to have the name of the wiki changed following the change of the name of the Committee - see <http://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Resolution:Affiliations_Committee_Charter> for more information.

Errrr, no, reverted. If odder says he speaks for the committee then he speaks for the committee.
Oh sorry Odder, I misread the following paragraph ("there isn't " instead "there is"):

Thank you for the precision.

Not really; the bug has the 'ops' keyword which effectively means that only employees of the Wikimedia Foundation Operations Team are capable of resolving it (since it requires direct access to one or more servers or closed repos to change DNS settings, etc.). Thanks for asking, though :-)

Correct that this issue isn't fixable without specific permissions.
I'd just like to mention that many (not all) ops tasks can also be at least prepared (patches) by volunteers (e.g. Apache config changes). :)

Also, one example from comment #10 is wrong:
DNS can now be patched by any volunteer just like apache config.
