As this is not about WMF staff, please follow the process outlined here: https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Volunteer_NDA
In this case, what is still needed, in short:
Hello @Aklapper, sorry to re-ask again the same question but this is a bit confusing for me as well. In T158053, after a looong discussion with Legal we verified their NDA and added their accounts to the nda LDAP group, so this should be sufficient to avoid the L2 signing no? I agree with you that a proper account verification would be needed, but T158053 and LDAP should be enough no?
@elukey: No need to be sorry, really. :) I'm not entirely happy about the current process either.
Thing is, I have no way to verify NDAs and I don't want to jeopardize access restrictions. I guess that checking membership of an account in the nda LDAP group (I which seems to require access to terbium which I don't have?) should also be sufficient if the Phabricator accounts in questions are linked to their corresponding LDAP accounts. This is currently not the case but can be done by a user by going to your "Personal account settings > Authentication > External Accounts" and adding LDAP there. If Legal is fine with that. :)
(In the long run I'd hope that upstream implements Phab project membership based on external things like LDAP.)
For the time being I'd recommend signing L2 and then getting an okay from a C level (see the page I linked to). Yes this might be redundant, but again I have no access to NDAs. Sorry. :-/
Really sorry but I completely forgot about this task!
@Jksamra and @Mpany: just to complete the verification chain, would you mind to edit your Wikitech user pages adding your Phabricator user page link? This would be enough to join Wikitech/LDAP with Phabricator from my point of view.
@jrobell: I'll ask to Lisa to review this task and give her approval once the above action will be complete.
Sorry again for the delay!
Ok now I can verify the following link:
Phab users MPany -> Wikitech/LDAP User Mpany -> LDAP nda group and NDA verification done in https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T158053
Phab users Jksamra -> Wikitech/LDAP User Jksamra -> LDAP nda group and NDA verification done in https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T158053
Asking to Lisa a final confirmation over email and than we should be done.
WDYT @Aklapper ?
