Aaron Schulz is on the Performance Team, but isn't part of our system groups. I'd like to request that his user (aaron) be added to both perf-team and perf-roots.

I don't understand this task. Aaron already had global root already, why is that needed at all?

As Moritz points out, we have a cron job that explicitly checks for duplicate permissions (modules/openldap/files/ and it flagged this. So we need to remove one or the other set of these permissions.

@aaron and @Imarlier which set of permissions should we clean up?

This has been answered on T202910#4544447 ff

This patch will remove him from global root:

We can close this ticket because membership in perf-team is done and confirmed and the remaining question is answered in the other ticket already. Would otherwise be duplicate discussion.
