|operations/mediawiki-config : master||Restrict merging rights to autoconfirmed users on wikidatawiki|
@Lydia_Pintscher 12 support vs 2 oppose, I think it's fine to move on with this.
Question: someone mentioned linking the page for requesting merge in the information message that will be displayed to the user, but I can't find such a page. Do we have a "request for merge" community page?
What error will be shown when for example a user connects a Wikipedia page to one in another language via the client widget? I bet most of those don't have enough edits to be autoconfirmed on Wikidata.
So the remaining question is how we deal with automatic merges done by the software. I hadn't thought of that but when someone connects two pages on different clients that already have items then the items get merged behind the scenes. What do we do in those cases? Do we let them go through? Do we let them silently fail? Those all don't seem great. Ideas?
