Support for new Access Policy/Confidentiality Agreement rollout
Closed, ResolvedPublic


What is the problem:
Legal (with the support of T&S) is launching a new version of the nonpublic data Access Policy and the Confidentiality Agreement that this goes with (on meta and on Phabricator).

How can we help: It would be really useful to get help putting it on meta and Phabricator (for the CA) especially for the translations we already have in 9 languages (full translations for the Access Policy, for the CA we only translated the 2 segments that were changed). T&S will be handling the ongoing support of getting functionaries and OTRS agents to sign the new agreement over the next 3 months.

What does success look like:
That we have our full translations for both the policy and CA up in their respective locations.

What is your deadline:
We were hoping to get the English version of these documents up on Meta by tomorrow Nov 2nd and all of the language translations by November 14th which is when we plan to launch the signing process (with a preference for getting them up by Friday Nov 9th so that we have some flex time).


  • Wikify English Access Policy updates
  • Wikify English Confidentiality Agreement updates
  • Wikify previously translated Access Policy updates
  • Wikify previously translated Confidentiality Agreement updates
  • determine new Access Policy page name
  • page-move the existing subpages-with-translations, one by one, to their new parent-page name. But Not moving the root page first, in order to avoid the bug with T114592 -- I.e. from the list, move these translated-pages (along with their translated-subpages):
  • .../MassMessages/Follow-up email notice to volunteers
  • .../MassMessages/Initial notice to OTRS volunteers
  • .../MassMessages/Initial notice to volunteers
  • .../MassMessages
  • .../Underage exemptions
  • .../noiddraft
  • and finally the root page, Access to nonpublic information policy
  • and the isolated page ...-summary (perhaps move this to become a subpage instead?)
  • update navigation template links
  • update various incoming links
  • Update the translation aggregate group
  • Mark old translated subpages (e.g. massmessages) as "discouraged" in Special:PageTranslation
  • obtain acl*access-policy-approvers temporarily (or whatever it was), from James
  • Update L4
  • Create new phab legalpads for each of the updated Confidentiality Agreement translations, along with new pasteable navbox code for moving between them.
  • Check for double-redirects going to the new Access Policy pages.
  • Check again for other incoming links / problems / template-updates / etc
  • Turn-off the old legalpads
  • Update all interwiki links going to the old legalpads
  • Update the header-noticebox on the wikipages
  • Rename the category
