Allow wmf-deployment to remove votes from changes in wmf branches
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Ocasionally, it's necessary to remove a vote from change against a wmf branch (see https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/c/mediawiki/extensions/AbuseFilter/+/525598 as an example). wmf-deployment can't do this now, and as such, deployment of those changes by a member of wmf-deployment who's not in mediawiki group requires getting somebody who is, just to remove the vote in question. Could we grant wmf-deployment this ability too? Thanks!

I support this proposal.

I support this, too, having wmf-deployment people able to deploy is their main reason why this group exists.
