Special:UserRights not available to everyone when assigning rights from Meta to another wiki.
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

T27319 was implemented, but it only works for those user rights that are assigned on the local wiki. If we assign the rights from Meta to another wiki, you see a message "You do not have permission to edit user rights on other wikis."

See for example:

I think it might be difficult to tell whether the remote wiki is private or not, and therefore whether unrestricted access to information about users there can be permitted.
