Allow global user rights to expire automatically

  • Problem: Like local user rights used to, up until the 2016 Community Wishlist, global rights don't expire automatically, creating a burden of keeping track of the expiry dates for the rights that need to be removed.
  • Who would benefit: Stewards, mostly
  • Proposed solution: When granting global user rights, add a new option to set a time how long the rights will last (maybe a drop-down menu?).
  • More comments: There is already a patch pending review on phab/gerrit. It'd need someone to adopt it and push it forward.
  • Phabricator tickets: phab:T153815

Discussion

  • Just want to know that this will also require schema changes, so its not as simple as merging the pending patch --DannyS712 (talk) 23:33, 28 November 2020 (UTC)[reply]
