This task (or perhaps a sub task) should also include the interaction with the mailing list to subscribe new auto editors. The script admin/SubscribeAutomodsToList needs to be ported to NGS in other words.

Please take a look a the script and update the estimate as needed.

Is there any chance that that same subscription mechanism could also allow nominees to be given list-posting rights, with those rights revoked should the nomination fail? This is something that seems to come up with at least every other nominee.

That's out of the scope for this task, please make a new enhancement ticket for that.

Ruaok, I think the original estimate gives space for the admin script.

Dropping to normal, need to focus on bug fixes for now

Some tickets from trac that would probably be valid if we actually had elections: (Text field "reasons" for automod nomination) ("Nominate for autoeditor" link should change to "view editor's nomination" when applicable) (Autoeditor elections page should show the date the election will close/finish)

The lack of any way to view top editors makes it harder to find candidates to nominate for auto-editor. As a result, auto-editor nominations have dropped off (even more) since NGS launch this year.

Ideally, there would be an auto-nomination process that would nominate candidates based purely on editing statistics (and prior nomination status) - but that is another ticket.

Election support is necessary before we can have an auto-nomination script.
