Temporary checkuser permission for election scrutineers[edit]

Original announcement
Doesn't a request need to be filed at m:SRP? --Rschen7754 05:40, 9 November 2018 (UTC)
I think last year they just granted themselves and removed themselves, which is the norm for when they do checks on wikis without CUs (which I know you know, but saying for those less familiar with meta.) I’d consider this to be similar to that sort of situation: they’re authorized to change their own rights here now that the committee has authorized them to be local CUs. I could easily be wrong here, but that’s my memory. TonyBallioni (talk) 05:52, 9 November 2018 (UTC)
Last year a request was filed at SRP: [1] --Rschen7754 06:09, 9 November 2018 (UTC)
That was also my recollection, which is why we didn't do anything at SRP, but we can certainly file an SRP request if required. Best, Kevin (aka L235 · t · c) 06:12, 9 November 2018 (UTC)
Seems I was wrong about last year. Also seems a bit makework considering that self-granting and removal of CU/OS is very normal to the point where some stewards do it multiple times a day, but agree with Kevin it can’t hurt if they want to insist on it. I personally think that just letting them self-grant going forward is best so there’s not yet another piece of bureaucracy in the lead up that we have to remember, but ymmv.

(I am the one being discussed here so bear that COI in mind but) my understanding was that the some sort of request(SRP or SRCU) was required where we are not doing something on our own volition, and where locals are fully tasked to do the job, and especially enwiki. — regards, Revi 06:35, 9 November 2018 (UTC)
That has been my understanding too, and it would probably be best for transparency. --Rschen7754 06:38, 9 November 2018 (UTC)
