Technical details[edit]

Mind if I edit this to be specific about the details?

  • enable group "autopatrol"
  • enable group "patrol"
  • enable sysop access to UserRights
  • restrict sysop use of UserRights to add/remove group "patrol", add/remove group "autopatrol"

Do we want "rollback"? Group gives users the "rollback" link when looking at a diff. This is a useful combination with "patrol".

Even if we don't want to use group "patrol", we can ask for it and then decide? Or decide now? I would rather not ask for "autopatrol" now and go back and ask for "patrol" in a little while. Robert Ullmann 17:47, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

Sounds good to me (the rewording). And since we're not actually adding anyone to "patrol" or "rollback", there's little harm in adding "rollback".—msh210 18:06, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

this is a configuration request[edit]

it is not some flakey enhancement

specifically, it is changing the local variables for the en.wikt thusly:

/**
 * This will add the patrol group
**/
$wgGroupPermissions['patrol']['patrol']          = true;
$wgGroupPermissions['patrol']['rollback']        = true;
$wgGroupPermissions['patrol']['autopatrol']      = true;
/**
 * This will add the autopatrol group
**/
$wgGroupPermissions['autopatrol']['autopatrol']  = true;
/**
 * This will give sysops access to the Special:Userrights page
**/
$wgGroupPermissions['sysop']['userrights']       = true;
/**
 * This will restrict sysops to add/remove only the specified groups in the Special:Userrights page
**/
$wgAddGroups['sysop'] = array( 'patrol', 'autopatrol' );
$wgRemoveGroups['sysop'] = array( 'patrol', 'autopatrol' );

These are standard core MW groups, just like "sysop", "autoconfirmed", "bot", etc. (note that "patrol" grants "rollback" and "autopatrol", we don't have a separate grant of "rollback" this way, but we could.) Robert Ullmann 11:10, 26 September 2008 (UTC)
