biplabanand added a comment to T129768: Set 'Wiktionary' namespace alias to NS_PROJECT in ne.wiktionary.

The change only added an alias, as noted in the task description, so I guess the situation is more like this:

Namespace canonical nameNamespace alias
Configuration at task openingWiktionary
Configuration at task resolveWiktionaryविक्सनरी
Configuration suggested by biplabanandविक्सनरीWiktionary

Should we proceed, ie change the canonical namespace to be in Devanagari, and the Latin version in alias?

after the deployment, the namespace is changed to Roman (Wiktionary) but it should be in Devanagari (विक्सनरी). Please take a look to resolve it.

The group exists, it just can't be added by local users. And it allows importupload - I think we should prefer the transwiki group. Did you try asking the stewards to grant the flag to users needing it instead?

biplabanand added a comment to T111898: Enable Grant Bot Rights Permission for Sysop in Maithili Wikipedia.

Ok, I'm a little bit confused about this task, Is someone able to answer a couple questions for me?

  • It appears that there is currently a need (or at least when this task was created) for 1 bot? Is that correct? (are there multiple bots?)
  • The normal process for a community of this size would be to get consensus for the bot and then have the stewards flag it. Has that been attempted? Have the community asked the Stewards to flag the bot after having a brief discussion?
  • If they have asked the stewards to flag the bot did they do it? If they have not asked the Stewards yet why not?

Currently reading the comments here we seem to be going in circles trying to get debate a position that isn't really needed yet. For a community of this size flagging bots is (and usually should be but that's a different question) relatively rare and so having local users be able to do it is usually not necessary. Bot flags are actually quite powerful because it makes it much harder to check the work of those who have them and so problems can go undetected. As much local governance as possible is often beneficial but If you don't have many community members yet then it is a lot easier for 1 or 2 members to impose their will and so having a bit of a check and balance with the stewards is important. If they are in any way making it difficult to get what you need then that should be addressed. So far, however, it doesn't seem like they've been asked... (I haven't looked deeply so someone correct me if I'm wrong).
For right now it seems like the right course of action is to get the bot flagged (if it wasn't already done) and leave it at that for now. As the community goes they'll be able to have their own local bureaucrat who can take care of bot requests locally. Does anyone see a way to I'm misreading this?
