Add further rights to wmf-supportsafety user group; remove some from global staff user group
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

In addendum to T136046: add wmf-supportsafety user group on meta, further user rights need to be assigned to the local wmf-supportsafety user group on meta, and some to be subsequently removed from the global staff group.

The rights to be added are:

  • editcontentmodel
  • massmessage (to later be removed from the global staff group)
  • centralauth-oversight (to later be removed from the global staff group)

Event Timeline

Removal of the rights from the global group is done by stewards, not us

Yeah - this will be the case here as well. This task is mostly for the addition of these new user rights, which will be done first.

Triage and project since it needs steward attention at Meta to do the last
part.
