T324492 will introduce a new account type: temporary accounts.
This task involves the work of identifying what – if any – changes will need to be made to editing-related schemas so that the Editing Team can differentiate between people editing with different account types [i] for the purposes of aggregating the editing behavior of these different account types and making decisions in response to the conclusions we draw from these aggregates.
Decisions to be made
- What – if any – changes need to be made to editing-related schemas to handle temporary accounts?
- 1. Might it be possible for the updates required to be made in a general users table in the data lake, such that no schema-specific changes would be required? @DLynch posed this question offline.
i. : Logged out, temporary account, logged in. Note: it strikes me that the notion of a "logged out editor" will no longer exist so maybe we can remove this altogether.
