Description Stig Meireles Johansen 2007-09-24 23:32:20 UTC
To be able to assign the patrol and autopatrol rights at the wikimedia-projects, one must first request a new group and then get a steward to do the assignments. This is rather tedious and could possibly be very annoying for the stewards. Until a more specific User Rights Scheme is implemented, it would be good to have an interim solution to the assignment problem. I have hacked together an extension called Makepatrol (based on Makebot and FlagedRevs (for more than one choice)) which gives sysops the right to give and take patrol/autopatrol-rights. I have also made the patrollers able to do rollbacks as this is a closely related function. Would it be possible to get this extension installed in the wikipedia-projects, or what would be needed to get this done?

Sorry, I didn't notice.

I think we should use new system with $wgAddGroups and $wgRemoveGroups (see r23410) instead of it
Comment 8 Brion Vibber 2007-09-26 18:24:54 UTC
That feature was added so additional special-purpose add/revoke pages wouldn't be required, yes.
