I like the idea of giving everyone who has
editbugs the right to give
other people the editbugs permission. That's certainly worth a try
assuming it's possible to configure.
I want to underscore this again. I think this is a great idea
and I haven't seen any objections to it yet. Can we go ahead
with this proposal?
There seems to be sufficient support to grant users who have "editbugs"
rights the permission to hand out (and revert) editbugs rights to/of
If we did this, users with editbugs rights can go to "Links >
Administration > Users", enter the email address of a user, and hand out
editbugs to other users.
However, the right to hand out editbugs rights to other users cannot be
handed out recursively: If I give user X the right to hand out editbugs
permissions to other users, then user X can only give editbugs to user Y
him/herself, but user Y will NOT automatically be able to hand out
editbugs to user Z.
For the records: Currently 14744 Wikimedia Bugzilla users have editbugs
permissions (so this is something to do via an SQL command instead of me
clicking myself to death in Bugzilla's web interface).
