I am wanting to test the maintenance script in https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/333486 on the beta cluster before it gets run on production, and for that, I would need shell access. If https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/333917 were to get merged, I'd want to test that on beta as well.
I'm not really sure what the requirements are in order to be granted this access. Ordinarily I would poke someone who already has these rights to do the testing, but I get a bit tired of being dependent on everyone else to do my work for me :)
