Hi Kunal,

thanks for bringing this up on the list. I've missed the ticket before.
I volunteer to get Wikidata devs solve this issue.

A while back I filed a task[1] to clean up the
mediawiki/extensions/Wikibase ACL. It hasn't seen any input from the
Wikidata team so I'm raising it here.

Some of the permissions I think are uncontroversial to remove (no one
should be force pushing), but currently there's a disconnect in which
some humans have the ability to force merge, and others don't.

I'd like for it to either be: no humans can force merge (only bots can
merge), or all humans can force merge (for emergencies, etc.)
