Process change: New contributors getting editbugs on Bugzilla

Mark Holmquist-2
Hi,

For the nth time, in #mediawiki, I've had someone ask how to be able to mark a bug as resolved, or claim it, or mark it as a duplicate of another bug. I conceptually know that this means "getting editbugs permissions" but it happens so infrequently that I never know where to go.

Usually what happens is this:
1. I wrack my brain trying to remember the process for about 30 seconds
2. Failing, I try to ping Andre, Quim, and Sumana (none of whom are in the channel, sadly)
3. I search with duckduckgo and pull up nothing of any use
4. I search MediaWiki.org and find outdated status reports about greasemonkey scripts but nothing useful
5. I go to the developer hub pages and look at the welcome-to-the-community process but again find nothing describing this process

Solution: We've made every editbugs user able to add editbugs to an account. I've documented the process here: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Bugzilla#Why_can.27t_I_claim_a_bug_or_mark_it_resolved.3F

Thanks to Chad for the quick resolution on this, hopefully this will be a positive change overall.

Thank you! This is extremely sensible. Hopefully we can make sure avoid
duplicating this problem again in Phabricator.

Does this only apply to every user who has editbugs right now, or will
it also apply to those we give editbugs to in the future?

Thank you for finally getting this done! :)

Jasper Deng
If I recall correctly, it used to be the default, but it was removed after
some Bugzilla vandalism in 2011.

Thank you Mark (and Chad) for going ahead!

I'm crossing fingers that advantages will outweigh the potential
problems which made me indecisive about how to solve this problem.

Time will tell, but right now I'm just happy there is progress.

Thanks!

As far as I know, yes, it will apply to users who will get editbugs later. Chad apparently made the ysers in the 'editbugs' group be able to add users to the 'editbugs' group.
