There is a special usergroup which allows editing the MediaWiki namespace: the translator group. It was originally created for translating Incubator-specific messages in the MediaWiki namespace (see Incubator:Translation project). It is nowadays largely outdated, as most of the messages can now be translated on translatewiki.net or via the local installation of the "Translate" extension. It may still be granted for specific purposes.
In three currently translators in Incubator:
- Rachitrali edited common.css and some local gadgets. It will no longer be possible without techadmin right.
Therefore the translator is largely unused and redundant to techadmin. In addition the user group name is not standardized (cf T144638). Let's remove it and grant techadmin instead if required.
