Permission to post article in mainspace

Hi there, I work in the software development department of Wikimedia Deutschland and I'm trying to create a page here:

https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Wikibase/Institutional_requirements_for_Wikibase

Unfortunately, I receive this message when I try to publish on the page: "We're sorry, your edit was not saved as it matched the rule: Prevent new users from creating articles in mainspace. This usually happens because the type of edit you made is often done by vandals and spammers. If that is not the case, we apologise. If you believe your edit was constructive, please file a request here, explaining what you were trying to do."

Is there some kind of list of approved accounts I can be added to so as to allow me to edit this page both now and in the future?

Thanks in advance for your help
