We need manager approval and SRE meeting review.

Approval from my WMDE manager or a WMF sponsor?

Approval from my WMDE manager or a WMF sponsor?

In the past I believe we have kind of needed both.
I just pinged @WMDE-leszek to come and approve from our side.

As an engineering manager at WMDE, I hereby approve this request.

SSH access works, thank you :)

Ah, but I don’t have +2 rights in operations/mediawiki-config yet, so I can’t merge config changes that I would like to deploy (example). Should I request that separately somewhere?
