Proposing to decline this "tracking task" as per discussion in T102500. If there are use cases why someone would specifically like to get notification about (sub)tasks which are about robots.txt (or some other use case which isn't covered by [[ https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/maniphest/query/__t2oa6sdQss/#R | searching for robots.txt ]]), please share them! Thanks.
@Aklapper Umm, I little oppose rejection, because edit right to MediaWiki: namespace is nowadays limited to technical adminships only (even you play MediaWiki software on your localhost, you still should grant TA yourself before continue editing), and we can't ensure that all living MWsites are having at least one TA, thus we still need a better-running bulletin for those wikis that don't have that, unless if there's another system (on-wiki? Github? Discord? IRC? FB group? Google+? Phabricator Conpherence? Telegram?...) that in any cases much more better than this task, we should still open this for a long long time.
"TA" is for "technical admin" which I guess stands for "interface admin" (https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/MediaWiki_1.32/interface-admin). I don't think that it has anything to do with editing robots.txt messages though, the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Robots.txt message can still be edited by normal admins.
" Google's robots.txt Parser is Now Open Source " <- This might be helpful for this ticket or subtickets of it.
