2008-01-13 17:48 UTC, Alexandre Emsenhuber [IAlex]

Description Purodha Blissenbach 2008-01-13 16:38:17 UTC
In the ksh Wikipedia, recentchanges are being clutted with messages from a bot, ReDirBot.
Removing the bot flag and setting it again did not change the obnoxiois behaviour. The bot has been temorarily suspended, until the problem is solved.

patch for Article.php

It seems to only the case for new articles, see

Reason : Article::doEdit() now requires unconditionnaly the EDIT_FORCE_BOT flag to mark the edit as bot, but Article::insertNewArticle() doesn't add it if the edit should be marked as bot, here a patch to fix it.
