This page in a nutshell:
  • Stewards can grant a user account an exemption that overrides global IP blocks
  • Global IP block exemptions do not override a block set locally on a wiki

The global IP block exemption is a global group that allows users to bypass global IP blocks and rangeblocks. Users may request access to global-ipblock-exempt at Steward requests/Global permissions. If the IP is also blocked locally, users may also request access via stewards(_AT_)wikimedia.org.

This group allows the user to bypass global IP blocks, global rangeblocks and Tor exit node blocks, according to the policy at No open proxies#Exceptions.

This group does not affect local IP blocks and local rangeblocks; for which a local IP block exemption is needed.
