What you probably mean is for autoreview AND editor to now have the rights. Could you confirm?

What you probably mean is for autoreview AND editor to now have the rights. Could you confirm?

Do you mean to add these rights (move-categorypages, movestable) to the group of editors too?

Well, by what you have requested only admins (администраторы) and autoreviewers (автодосматривающие) will have the rights but not editors (патрулирующие). This makes rather little sense.

For example I would be able to use those tools (I am an autoreviewer) but Dmitry Rozhkov who is an editor but not autoreviewer would be not.

Thus yes, I suggest to add the rights to the group of editors too.

@Base: Thank you, then I correctly understood your question.

I consciously do it because I'm a supporter of the separation of constituent of group rights (like rollbacker in this request). Therefore, usually I don't remove editors from the autoreviewers group. After changing the group rights, I will do the necessary changes to the rights of the users.

In this particular case, it is necessary to do as the community has decided and as written in the request.

If you have any suggestions, they can be discussed before on the project pages with our community.

Okay, if it is a conscious decision rather than an overlook it is fine.

Rewriting the request in English:

  • Removing move-categorypages from users and adding to autoreviewers
  • Removing movestable from autoconfirmed and adding to autoreview
  • Creating rollbackers, grantable by sysops
