Allow 'contentadmin' being managed by wikitech bureaucrats
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Giving 'crats the right to grant and remove contentadmin seems appropriate. A related question is whether 'crats should be able to grant sysop at all on wikitech.

Contentadmin = sysop w/o editinterface/hiera rights afaics. Since sysop seems sensitive, I propose that we allow bureaucrats to add/remove contentadmin (and shell per T158516) on Wikitech, and remove wikitech bureaucrats the ability to promote users to the 'sysop' usergroup, leaving that task for 'cloudadmins' since they have the 'userrights' permission.
