Suspend centralauth-rename (global rename) rights until 28 November 2016
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Per T148242 and T150835. Due to technical limitations, some global renamers were not aware that no global renames should be performed between today and the end of 27 November 2016 and some have been done. To prevent any more slips, please unset or remove the global rename permissions from global renamers, stewards and WMF-SuSa groups at Meta-Wiki until 28 November 2016.

Disable centralauth-rename right for maintenance

Dereckson lowered the priority of this task from Unbreak Now! to High.
Dereckson moved this task from Backlog to To deploy on the Wikimedia-Site-requests board.

Per discussion on Freenode wikimedia-operations, the worst case if an issue occurs is the need to run maintenance script twice, so this could be deployed at the morning SWAT.

(Copying here what I sent by email but that never arrived)

Thank you. Maybe when this is done we could move $wgGroupPermissions for stewards from CommonSettings to InitialiseSettings for meta? (In case that works ofc).

Hi, just a heads-up, we might want to delay re-enabling the rights a little longer beyond the 28th. The script will possibly run longer than anticipated. I'll keep you posted on the progress. Thanks.
