Ombudsman[edit]

I've noticed that the ombudsman were not listed in this policy despite having the technical ability to view over sighted information. Would it be okay to make a change including them? The policy says community consensus is needed prior to a change so here I am seeking consensus. Cameron11598 (Converse) 09:03, 23 October 2016 (UTC)

Added. No consensus needed to reflect reality, only to change existing practice :-) – Ajraddatz (talk) 09:15, 23 October 2016 (UTC)
@Ajraddatz: added not sure my wording was the best but it can be twiddled by anyone else :D Cameron11598 (Converse) 10:17, 23 October 2016 (UTC)
Well, if we add ombudsmen, we also need to list stewards as users with restricted access. They have exactly the same "passive" view-only permission unless they add themselves to the local OS group. --Vogone (talk) 12:01, 23 October 2016 (UTC)
I had added the info to the "everywhere" section of the requests for oversight subpage. Do we need it in the lead part as well? – Ajraddatz (talk) 18:55, 23 October 2016 (UTC)
