Description Mike.lifeguard 2008-06-08 21:03:07 UTC
Since the automatic account creation log entries are excluded from recentchanges, they are not available to CU. Perhaps having the info entered to recentchanges but marked as bot would do this. Or have the info entered into the CU table but not recentchanges.
Comment 1 Siebrand Mazeland 2008-08-16 20:01:03 UTC
Recategorised as CheckUser issue. CheckUser should use the hook "AuthPluginAutoCreate" and catch autocreated users.
Comment 2 Mike.lifeguard 2008-08-16 20:21:12 UTC
Changing summary to use Siebrand's description. Less alarmist, and less BEANS-y :D

CCing Aaron, as he seems to be on a spree of fixing CheckUser things :DD
Comment 3 Fran Rogers 2008-08-19 02:47:55 UTC
Fixed in r39631. :)
Comment 4 Andrew Garrett 2008-08-29 06:07:44 UTC
Reverted in r39666 (heh).

"Revert r39647 -- doesn't work, parameter is a User object not a name."
Comment 5 Aaron Schulz 2008-09-12 04:22:47 UTC
Done in r40740.
