@MuhammadShuaib Should I take this patch from you and deploy it at September 08? BTW I've fixed your patch ;).

Do you agree? If so, please assign this task to me. I'll take care about it.

Thanks for fixing, I assigned this to you. :)
PS: How did you fix it and how do you deploy?

Okay, will be deployed today between 15 and 16 UTC.

You didn't close the array about group. For deploying you must schedule your change at https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Deployments and be available in #wikimedia-operations at freenode during the window. Somebody will guide you :).

Add massmessage-sender group to urwiki

Hi, I am still seeing this . Will the actual application of this deployment take some more time?

Opps, this is because mass message senders can send messages, but nobody can assign this permission. Could you tell me who should be able to grant/revoke this group? Sysops? 'Crats? Should the granter be able to revoke the group too? Currently only stewards are allowed to do this.

Admins or bureaucrats should be able to grant or revoke the permission.

Okay, writing a patch. The nearest deploy window is at Monday, in the meanwhile you can ask stewards for assigning this permission (preferably a 'crat should ask as a member with high trust of the comunnity).

Nothing happened :). I closed it sooner that I may (the change was deployed only on one test server so I could test it and I couldn't break anything :)). My mistake ;).
