[Mediawiki-l] [WikiEN-l] Invitation to help beta-test the MediaWiki 1.19 extension for the Wikipedia Education Program

No, the "Education Program admin" refers to a volunteer administrator of the 
program, such as a regional or national ambassador. The title varies 
depending on what part of the world they operate in, so simply calling them 
"Education Program regional ambassador" doesn't quite line up on some 
individuals. I'm personally not fond of the "admin" nomenclature myself, as 
it does (as you point out) confuse the individual with sysops. We're open to 
other ideas for naming the user access level if you have any.

The users that are assigned this user access level will inherit privileges 
from the ep-instructor, ep-campus-ambassador, and ep-online-ambassador, and 
will be able to administer those user access levels. Other than that, it's a 
typical autoconfirmed user.

Thanks,
Rob

Thanks for the post, Rob.  Will an Education Program admin have the same
access levels as a sysop on the English Wikipedia?
