Description Stefan Bauer 2007-07-03 19:00:57 UTC
cmprop is working fine in list mode, but in generator mode the parameter gcmprop is ignored.

Weird. Does this occur only with prop=sortkey (as the title suggest) or with the gcmprop parameter in its entirety? Either way, I'm on it.
Comment 2 Roan Kattouw 2007-07-03 19:11:01 UTC
Resolving as INVALID. Generators are just intended to generate a titles/pageids/revids array for use in the next step. Outputting sortkey while in generator mode is simply not possible.
Comment 3 Stefan Bauer 2007-07-03 19:30:56 UTC
No problem if this behaviour is as expected, but then the documentation should be checked - at the moment I can't find the slightest hint for these limitations.

The documentation is incomplete as hell anyway. Many API features are even entirely undocumented.

I see, the normal way of programming ;-)

What about an error for paramters that are allowed in prop/list mode but ignored in generator mode - instead of just silently ignoring them?

Could be done. We had a little trouble with gwlprop, which wasn't allowed, but because there was a default value for it, an error would *always* be thrown. I suggested checking against the default, but Yuri fixed it by simply silently ignoring the gwlprop param. We'd have to discuss this with Yuri before we go around changing half a dozen files.
