Description

Background

T296085: Create a group that grants basic ipinfo* rights covers creating a group that grants basic rights to users. With that group created, users will have to be added to it.

AC
  • When a user has made 1 edit, they are automatically added to the group using the autopromote once mechanism
Notes
  1. See the MediaWiki Manual entry for $wgAutopromoteOnce
  2. Here's the equivalent to the $wgAutopromoteOnce stanza in our production config: https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/g/operations/mediawiki-config/+/d22090c014be2cf17d22f15b55bcbd678dbfee98/wmf-config/InitialiseSettings.php#14823
