Seeing as how one of the most common requests requiring the editing of configuration files (AFAICS) is to temporarily raise account-creation limits for various kinds of edit-a-thons, etc., should "we" (IANA dev) consider whether it is possible to provide an on-wiki solution to handling such requests?
Depending on how it is implemented, the most obvious possible benefit to doing this on-wiki would be that requests could be fulfilled almost immediately (presumably), instead of requiring a generous lead-time of "at least a week" (which "nobody" knows about until they make such a request too late).
Is it even possible to do this on-wiki? How could it be done?
Has this already been discussed in another Phabricator task? (If so, I didn't find it.)
