Request for quantity expiration change of ubuntu-l10n-zh-cn team membership

Asked by Aron Xu on 2009-09-04

I want to request for a quantity expiration change of ubuntu-l10n-zh-cn team membership, that is change all members' expiration date (except administrators, please keep theirs unchanged) from "never" to 2010-09-04, the previous setting was never expire, and there are more than 400 members there, it is really hard to change by hand.
I've set the expiration to 365 days on the team's detail page, and find it seems only apply on newly approved member.

For your convenience, here is the link to the team:

Thanks in advance.

Hi Aron,

After talking to Danilo, this is not currently possible without resourcing to database surgery and administrative overhead.

Here's a proposal to do this yourself in an easy way:

1) Rename the team to something else (e.g. ubuntu-l10n-zh-cn-old
2) Create a new ubuntu-l10n-zh-cn team
3) Invite only trusted contributors to the new team (and make it moderated or restricted, set up the default membership expiration, etc.)
4) Once done, request that the new team be added to the ubuntu-translators group
5) Request to close the old team

I hope this helps. If you need more assistance, do not hesitate to comment further here or ping me on IRC.
