Currently declined the stewards onwiki request; forking the wikiset just to add this for one project isn't the best course of action; we are of course open to a community discussion about adding the translation admin permissions to the entire GS opt-in wikiset; please open a discussion on meta-wiki if that is desired.

The distinction is local rights are done via code, and global rights are done on-wiki. Yes, this is bizarre. The patch you wrote will succeed in granting translate admin to local admins on WMF-wiki, and will create a local "global-sysop" group with no members, which is not what you want.

Varnent added a comment to T346187: Give Translate Admin group on edit-legal rights on Foundation Governance Wiki (foundation.wikimedia.org).

The permissions global sysops have are controlled on-wiki, and not via Phabricator, and they don't appear to have translation admin rights per https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:GlobalGroupPermissions. Any steward could fix that, so it should probably be requested at https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Stewards%27_noticeboard or https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Steward_requests/Miscellaneous.

In the past - global changes to permissions have been done via code (example: T297396). This is not specific to any individual wiki account. So it is about changing the defaults for https://foundation.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:GlobalGroupPermissions - which in my experience has generally been done via Phabricator. But I am open to other ideas/suggestions if you have any. :)

Jul 12 2023, 9:15 PM · wikimediafoundation.org, collaboration-services
Varnent added a comment to T341233: Change soundlogo.wikimedia.org to redirect to page on Foundation website.

There are basically 2 modes: either WMF hosts the microsites, then we also manage the redirects related to them, or the microsites are hosted by 3rd party, then we have basically no control over them. (If they are already pointed elsewere at DNS level)

Both options have their own advantages and disadvantages for both of us. (And that's a good topic to discuss for the future, yes!).

The problem arises mostly just when we mix the 2 things and at the same time they need to be external and known in internal configs.

The examples annual.wikimedia.org and transparency.wikimedia.org are different from this because we actually host or hosted those ourselves. So we are just redirecting parts of things we are already hosting elsewhere. Whereas soundlogo is completely unknown in any WMF configs besides one line in DNS that points it over to another party.

@Nikerabbit - I do not see this workaround documented on MediaWiki.org. But there is a lot of docs for Translate - so perhaps I am missing it? Let me know if I am overlooking it or if you have any thoughts on where to add it ("shh - let's keep this quiet for now" also seems like a reasonable answer if need be). Otherwise, I will make a note to add this to documentation at some point, and if that creates duplicate entry of this info - oh well. ;)

@Varnent Based on T331680#8722152 and the following comment I thought the Phabricator part (to change links in footer there) of this was done and I had removed our team tag. Just to make sure I got it right, you need to deploy changes to rewrite rules for foundation.wikimedia.org now?

If so... and because that is not a microsite like others but the config for that is on Mediawiki Appserver cluster it means nowadays another team is responsible to get that deployed. If that is the case please add it on this workboard: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/project/view/3775/
