Maintenance script for conversion of makebot logs (1.19 KB, text/plain)
2008-07-30 18:50 UTC, Max Semenik
Details

Description Siebrand Mazeland 2008-05-16 20:46:54 UTC
Extension Makebot is obsolete as its functionality is now available on WMF wikis through [[Special:Userrights]]. It should be removed from the configuration of all wikis.

The same could probably be true for Makesysop, although I do not know if 'make sysop' and 'desysop' are two separate configurable rights... (as sysops can be created by bureaucrats, and desysop can only be performed by stewards)
Comment 1 Siebrand Mazeland 2008-05-16 20:55:10 UTC
Aaron tell me the extension is needed for showing log items. Sounds like something that should be fixed in core...
Comment 2 Eugene Zelenko 2008-06-05 21:16:44 UTC
User rights and bot status logs should be combined before removing bot status/make sysop extensions.
Comment 3 Max Semenik 2008-06-27 15:30:58 UTC
Four calls like

$dbw->update(
	'logging', 
	array( 
		'log_type' => 'rights',
		'log_action' => 'rights',
		'log_params' => "\nbot" ),
	array(
		'log_type' => 'makebot',
		'log_action' => 'grant' ),
	'convertLogs.php' );

would do it, but it'll fail to take other permissions affected accounts had at that time. Though since some changes are on Meta, some older log entries have different format, and some rights were assigned before the introduction of logs, there probably can be no absolutely correct way to convert makebot logs.
Comment 4 Bryan Tong Minh 2008-06-27 19:54:54 UTC
You will want to traverse the bot promotion log from top to bottom or from bottom to top to get effective summaries. In the meanwhile Special:Makebot could be disabled though.

Proposed conversion script, works with disclaimer from Comment #3.
Comment 6 Purodha Blissenbach 2008-08-03 16:22:41 UTC
Do you take into account that, there are links to the old style logs in the wikis, including ones having varuious combinations of parameters?

Yes, Special:Userrights should be used now. Makebot should be removed.

Comment 9 Alex Z. 2009-08-18 00:19:26 UTC
Added a maintenance script to convert the logs in in r55219

The wikis that will need conversion (as of a few minutes ago) are: http://p.defau.lt/?8Omw64sUPLDuiohjiE8nlw

I wasn't able to check some of the "special" wikis due to either restricted access or API disabled
Comment 10 Shinjiman 2009-08-29 12:28:58 UTC
The alias of MakeBot had been set to UserRights by Mr. Z-man on r55660.

bug 20767 needs to be done before this is considered fixed.
