Let bureaucrats on mediawiki.org remove 'accountcreator' (they can already add it)
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

On 6d62e9ea8a5c @Bawolff granted the ability for mediawiki.org bureaucrats to flag users as accountcreator but forgot to assign those the ability to remove people from that group. He uploaded rOMWC30ee10d3c5f4 for that.

I scheduled that for SWAT yesterday but @zeljkofilipin refused to merge that because there was no Phabricator ticket or wiki discussion.

There is still no in wiki discussion.

I was creating the one for the add part, so I'll note this too.

Feel free to schedule this for SWAT again. I'm tired to go back and forth adding patches to Wikitech (T171940).
