Can I grant permissions to users based on moira lists?

You can automatically add users to MediaWiki groups based on membership in AFS groups. Once you have the MITAuth extension deployed, you are able to use the groups as a criterion called APCOND_IN_MOIRA_GROUP in MediaWiki standard autopromotion mechanism . For example, in order to make all members of AFS group “test” administrators (i.e. put them into MediaWiki group “sysop”), you need the following LocalSettings.php line:

$wgAutopromote['sysop'] = array( APCOND_IN_MOIRA_GROUP, 'test' );
