Description Tim Landscheidt 2014-01-25 04:58:17 UTC
https://wiki.toolserver.org/w/api.php?action=query&list=allpages&apprtype=edit|move lists:

* Account approval policy
* Account approval policy/de
* Account approval policy/en
* Account approval process
* Account approval process/for reviewers
* Accounts
* Main Page
* News
* Rules
* Servers

On Toolserver, there are additional levels of protection (edithomepage, editpolicy) because sysop rights were given out rather liberally.  After the move to WMF, a single (small) group of administrators should be enough, so all pages listed above should be edit- and moveable by sysops only.

This bug is invalid, as far as I'm concerned. It's still unclear what's going to happen to the wiki at wiki.toolserver.org, but I can't fathom a reason that we would need to protect outdated/historical pages such as the Toolserver account approval policy. And protecting individual pages on a wiki (or not) is outside the scope of Bugzilla.

Regarding the first aspect, I didn't look for a reason, but the pages are protected currently, and I see no reason not to transfer that setting that has been enabled for years; if we found some time in the future that this was a mistake or just unnecessary, it would take a couple of clicks to unprotect them.

Regarding the second aspect, this bug is "part" of the mother bug 60220.  It's a small, actionable item with clear dependencies so that it is not missed in a gush of text and comments.  Its topic isn't protecting pages on a wiki, but preserving the protection status as part of the migration.
