@mark, @RobLa, this is indeed a test of T655: Implement the Volunteer NDA process in Phabricator.

In a real situation, I would ask you to confirm that you have discussed with @Matanya and agree with this request. Can you please both reply, for the sake of the test? Thank you!

PS: let me insist, no extra permissions will be actually granted to matanya in this exercise. :)

If someone else is reading this, they can also add thumbs up tokens, to support this request. This is not that different to Gerrit's +1.

Let's imagine that @mark has approved as well.

@Matanya, now you have access to {L2}. Please sign it.

(all the better if you can actually read it, and ask any questions you might have in reality) :)

I have read and signed the doc. No questions, since i don't speak lawyerish :) it is quite standard and straitforward. Anything else on my part or i can get my super access now?

Qgil claimed this task.

List of signatures checked. Yep, I see you there.

At this point, I would look for C-level approval, but in this case is not needed because Robla-WMF already approved.

The next would be to reassign the task to WMF-Legal (Luis Villa by default), and then they would pass it to Operations, who would check the records in this task, grant the permissions, and close the task.

The part that was really was testing was the access to the Legalpad and it signature. I noticed the bits of the process that need better documentation, and I will work on it. We can always keep polishing details case by case. All in all, this process is already a big improvement.

Thank you @Matanya! And now... wake up! No root for you, sorry. :)
