Patch that adds the 'noratelimits' right (1.53 KB, patch)

Patch that adds the 'noratelimits' right

I don't really understand why we still have $wgRateLimitsExcludedGroups = array('sysop', 'bureaucrat'); while we could as well have:

$wgGroupPermissions['sysop']['noratelimits'] = true;
$wgGroupPermissions['bureaucrat']['noratelimits'] = true;

Is there some underlying reason I'm missing here, or is it just that no one has thought of this and/or gotten around to implementing this yet?

Done in r35794. Input welcome, this being my first commit.
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2008-06-04 17:33:42 UTC
I seem to recall reverting that one, some issues remaining. :)
Comment 3 Chad H. 2008-06-05 04:16:10 UTC
Fixed in r35908. Got it right this time. ;-)

Kept the old functionality intact, but updated the documentation on it to reflect that it's been deprecated in favor of the new method via $wgGroupPermissions.
