A user right for corrections to the lexicon of pronunciations
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Only authorised users should be allowed to push changes to the lexicon of pronunciations. Define which rights are needed (new user right or can one use/expand existing functions).

This task is responsible for deciding and documenting the necessary read/write rights and if any new groups are needed. Then implementing this in extension.json and any i18n files.

This task was originally created for Wikispeech 2016.

After a look through what rights exist in core and other extensions, it doesn't seem like reading from lexicon in and of itself would need a separate right. The only cases where I could find read or view rights was when dealing with sensitive information, either private or concerning security. I don't think that the information that will be presented when viewing lexicon entries will differ from normal pages in that regard.

However, since we want to check with Speechoid whether it has an lexicon entry, it would make sense to be able to limit reading. A request will be made at least if an entry is not present on the wiki.

I added a group for editing with the edit right and added reading to all users by default. It's possible that reading is technically needed for editing somehow, but that can be changed if that's the case.
