I'm working on Tracking-Neverending task transition as part of my membership in acl*Project-Admins. This involves sometimes making several hundred of changes as it happened in the last migration I performed (c.f. T151754 and T42760) where it involved unlinking 125 subtasks and modifying about the same number in bulk. This caused IRC flood and for sure a lot of emails sent for this. I don't feel that's user friendly for those subscribed or watching IRC feeds.
My request is that I be granted an account with bot and bulk-edit permissions so I can do this quietly when the need arises. I have a Wikimedia account, MABot, which I can register here via OAuth if desired.
The process I intend to follow is this: after consensus or no opposition is reached in a task, I (@MarcoAurelio) will create the project/tag as required/requested. Then I'll log-in to the "bot" account and will perform the batch editting via the bot account to avoid IRC and email flooding. The account will not be operating any script but it'll be me performing bulk edits for this scope.
I commit myself to keep the batch editting to tracking task transition only if approved, and that I'll seek approval to perform other kind of bulk-edits.
If you have any questions or concerns, please ask.
Thank you for your consideration.
