I was working on T302882 a couple of weeks ago. After setting up the project locally and visiting the client-side, it shows the popup given below
In order to meet the criteria, all the options other than 500+ edits can be configured from the admin side or manage.py shell. But the wp_enough_edits which is responsible for the 500+ edits is not editable from both the options (shell or admin), which is great for security in production. But for contributors who use TWlight on local, it can create problems since they cannot go ahead and create an application or see the partner detail page.
I went through the code and found that in users/models.py#L731 putting a number greater than in the editor_enough_edits function call (Eg: editor_enough_edits(600)) can solve the issue on local. Not sure if there is another way to overcome this.
If that is the only way, I think either we should put this method in the local setup guide, or we can make some changes to allow this configurable on local.
