I would like to nominate @Legoktm for admin (root) rights in the Toolforge project. Lego is a long time Toolforge user and trusted community member. He already has the prerequisite NDA coverage (Foundation staff/contractor).

He has specifically volunteered to help improve the Kubernetes environment, but I'm pretty certain that he will help us make many other things more awesome as well.

I don't think I needed a task like this for those rights. @Legoktm is a deployer he can probably still do cloudadmin stuff like adding himself to that group anyway.

We don't have a formal process for this (yet), but like +2 and production shell rights changes I felt that it would be a good idea to have a bit of documentation and probably a short discussion within the cloud-services-team.

Steps from

  • Project administrator: This allows a user to add and delete other users from the Toolforge project.
  • sudo policy "roots": This allows a user to use sudo to become root on Toolforge instances.
  • 'admin' tool maintainer: This allows a user to log into infrastructure instances and perform tasks as the admin tool.
  • Gerrit groups "labs-toollabs" and "toollabs-trusted": These allow a user to +2 changes in repositories exclusive to Toolforge.

I did not grant @Legoktm into the labs-toollabs gerrit group because I myself am not in the group! Looks like help from @Andrew is needed to expand the list of folks there or we should drop it from the list.
