The German Wikipedia community requested that German Wikipedia gets an additional page protection level. See :de:Wikipedia:Meinungsbilder/Zusätzliche Seitenschutzstufe for local consensus. The page protection level should allow only editors (in German "Sichter" or "aktive Sichter"), bots and sysops to edit or move pages.

Page protection level can be set by user rights, not user groups. So either, 1) there needs to be a right which is currently assigned to all the required groups (editor, bot, sysop) but not the other groups or 2) a new right has to be assigned to these groups. From a quick look, I don't see a such a right for these groups so 1 is probably not possible here.
A question to Glaisher. The community decided already with nearly 69 % that it will to have this page protect utility. Now you suggest the community should decide about the name for it. In fact, the name is not important but the content (and we have it). In fact the name will be seen probably by some admins only who are protecting the pages - now we have there default, autoconfirmed, and admins, and there should be something between autoconfirmed and admins. When we schall see there editor, so OK. Why to make a new poll? Regards.
Sorry for the extra bureaucracy but since every single suggestion here has been different, I don't see any other option considering that we act on community consensus for configuration changes.We could get a change deployed with 'editor' or 'infraprotect' or 'editnewbieprotected' or 'editorprotect' but then there could be someone who disagree with it. Thus, I believe the best thing is to obtain community consensus for the name and then get it deployed.
I would suggest the same implemantion as in plwiki to simplify the configuration and to allow adding a system message to the WikimediaMessages extension to translate the new right to all languages without the need of creating local pages for the right.
This could also include to do cascade protection with the new protection level.
I think they should be, but given that this is probably not going to be used on any other wiki, it could be ok not to. (Sharing the name and translations with plwiki would have been nice, if the semantics are similar).
Please create the following interface pages as well.
- right-editeditorprotected (used on Special:ListGroupRights)
- protect-level-editeditorprotected (used on the protection form)
- restriction-level-editeditorprotected (used on Special:ProtectedPages and Special:ProtectedTitles)
@Se4598: I already reviewed it, it's fine. We just need to find a window to deploy it in. (We don't just approve and deploy operations/mediawiki-config changes when we feel like it).
https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/202380 made it into the 1.26wmf1 branch, which goes to Wikipedias on Wednesday 15th.
So I assume @Glaisher will put the config change up for the SWAT deployment window a few hours after that.
