This is a request for granting merge privileges on the mediawiki group
(MediaWiki core and all extensions) per the gerrit privilege policy.
You can find the relevant ticket at <https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T261656>.
Martin Urbanec is a long term contributor, both on the wikis and to the code
base. As a Steward, he has the trust of the community. His contributions in code
include improvements to extensions like OATHAuth and CentralAuth. He is also
helping with decoupling classes in core to improve code health, and provides
configuration patches on behalf of the community.
Martin has been particularly helpful in investigating and fixing a recent
security issue (T260485). Working with him on that, I was surprised to find out
that he doesn't have +2 rights. From what I have seen, it seems empowering him
to merge patches is long overdue.
Principal Software Engineer, Core Platform
