#5856: Cannot edit my own post on cy.wordpress.org

 Three points:

 1. Can you please change the author of this blog post to the user
 carlmorris (me, a locale manager)?

 I published it yesterday and mistakenly set the author to the
 wordpressdotorg user account.

 Now I am unable to edit because I don't have privileges on my account to
 edit wordpressdotorg-authored posts. Weird!

 Therefore, also:

 2. Can you please remove the wordpressdotorg user account, or allow my
 account carlmorris to edit that user?

 Back story: we had a glitch with WordPress Cymraeg (Welsh) yesterday
 caused by an incomplete wp-config-sample.php - which is all fixed via SVN
 now, thanks to Polyglots/Make team. Therefore I need to update the post to
 let users know that the problem is resolved.

 3. Also: I imagine an account like wordpressdotorg could cause a similar
 problem for other language subdomains of wordpress.org - if it exists. You
 may want to check if it's possible for the locale manager to assign the
 wordpressdotorg (or similar) account as an author, because if so they will
 be stuck with a post that can't be edited/deleted. I have no way of
 checking other language subdomain sites.
