Give access to Wikimedia github account
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

For practical reasons we (Research folks) create and share code snippets and repositories on Github, rather than on Gerrit. We do so under our own private accounts. We'd like to request access to the Wikimedia account on Github so that we can freely create repositories and not worry about the bus factor.

A/C

Please give access to the wikimedia github account to the following github users:

  • kodchi (bmansurov here on phabricator)
  • dartar (DarTar on phab)
  • leilaz
  • DigitalTranshumant (diego on phab)
  • jtmorgan
  • mirrys

Event Timeline

bmansurov created this task.

@Capt_Swing @DarTar @diego @leila @Miriam feel free to add your Github usernames to the description of the task if you need access.

@bd808 I couldn't find any documentation regarding admins of the Wikimedia Github account (aside from some threads on wikitech). I remember you having access to it, so I'm pinging you here. Please let me know if someone else takes care of such requests.

I made @DarTar an "owner" of the wikimdia gihub group. He can now take care of adding others as needed.

DarTar moved this task from Backlog to In Progress on the Research board.
DarTar unsubscribed.

Thanks @bd808!

@bmansurov @leila I sent out invitations to your usernames listed above, let me know if you haven't received it.

@Miriam @diego @Capt_Swing @ezachte unless I hear from you (see task description), I'll close this task as done.

Note: we may also want to create a research team in the wikimedia org on Github.

I've created Research team on Github and added Dartar and Leilaz.

@DarTar, I noticed that I don't have enough permission to create repositories under the Wikimedia account. Could you check if you can allow me to create repositories too?

@bmansurov my understanding is that as a member you should be able to create repos, see this page. Most WMF staff in the Wikimedia org have "member" privs.

No luck. Here's what I see:

Here how to disable/enable this permission.

@bmansurov I gave you owner rights, use them responsibly.

Is everything done here? Can this be resolved now?
