@Pharos, did you want to grab this scepter and mark as resolved?

By 'administrator' here, I meant in part 'sysadmin'... someone who can deploy update-to-date versions and manage the config files. But, happy to have Pharos as an admin. (Happy to have him as a sysadmin too, but I'm not sure he'd be interested.)

Aha, thanks for clarifying! I've tweaked the language a bit and it's no longer an "Easy" task :)

@Elitre
Would you be able to develop our process for finding an initial group of admins?

Ragesoss made me an admin recently, but not a sysadmin (I am probably not qualified for the latter position). Should we set up a wiki page on enwiki or meta for people to make general requests for activating their 'courses'?

Sorry, I missed this. I believe that for testing the MVP we don't really need so many people (I can be an admin, I think I'm already one for the extension on en.wiki and test2? I think Floor, Amanda and others may be able to contribute for a while).
For the sysadmin part, I'm not sure I know someone who could do that. A list of the tasks this person should do and the kind of things s/he oughta know/know how to do in order to be admitted would be appreciated.

Ragesoss claimed this task.

At this point, the working plan is for me to continue doing this.
