--- Comment #17 from Snowolf <wikimedia.b...@snowolf.eu> ---
I'm making this as not done per the canvassing issues.

What we're worried here is a repeat of something akin to hiwiki, where users
with sysop rights sought to create a lot of permissions (compared to the number
of active users) to limit access to sysop. The mere request is not necessarily
a bad thing, but the admitted canvassing, especially coupled with recent issues
involving Kolega and steward requests, I think are worrying.

Canvassing makes it impossible to figure out whether a request has legitimate
community support. If you couple this with the fact that the wiki has barely 10
active users and a bot that's creating stubs automatically on a massive scale
(106k edits in the last 30 days), we're very, very close to what hiwiki was at
the time of the RfC. I am very worried by how things are going on there.
