Rename "ombudsman" global group to "ombuds"
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

There has been no WMF board objection, and an associated majority consensus to rename the "ombudsman" global group to the gender neutral "ombuds".

This appears to need a systems change and as a global group will be visible in all projects.

Event Timeline

I can confirm that the board discussed this proposal and their was only support for making the change in question.

Renaming of global groups is done via the on-wiki interface, and does not require a system change. Suggest closing as invalid

Message keys and values need renaming in WikimediaMessages

	"group-ombudsman": "Ombudsmen",
	"group-ombudsman-member": "{{GENDER:$1|ombudsman}}",
	"grouppage-ombudsman": "m:Ombudsman commission",

Phabricator use is encouraged for other types of Wikimedia project beyond software changes, such as Comms initiatives. Coordinating this change that might only be an email list name change and a wiki interface config is still part of how we want Phabricator to be of value and helps serve as a record of what was changed and can be quoted in other minor changes to avoid accidental systemic bias.

Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but afaik in this case we need to 1) add message keys for group-ombuds 2) wait for the new messages to go out with the train everywhere 3) rename the group on-wiki and 4) after that we can remove old message keys for group-ombudsmen (which should not be renamed as the content will change)

Yup

Interestingly, some translations (ie at) have already made it gender neutral :)

	"group-ombudsman": "Ombudspersonat",

Similar for German, and some just use "mediator"

A fellow steward just did the global group change. CLosing as resolved.

Not yet, since we have to get rid of the old message keys.
