Description Danny B. 2008-06-22 14:37:02 UTC
When the new namespace is added and such namespace is added to $wgNamespacesToBeSearchedDefault then it should also add this namespace to all user's preferences. I guess some maintenance script will be necessary for that.
Comment 1 Alexandre Emsenhuber [IAlex] 2008-06-25 17:35:40 UTC
Note: there's already maintenance/userOptions.php.
Comment 2 Robert Stojnic 2008-10-22 23:11:37 UTC
Fixed in 42352
Comment 3 Robert Stojnic 2009-04-24 10:23:00 UTC
Did a quick testing, found couple of issues with new preferences. Scenario:

1) Take a user created before the merge
2) add some namespace to $wgNamespacesToBeSearchedDefault
3) since old/new namespaces seem to get intersected, the modification of 2) doesn't really influence the user
4) try changing some of namespaces this user searches via preferences by e.g. adding some namespace, error is returned: "There are problems with some of your input", changes are not saved

Seems to be because updating default options doesn't seem to purge the user cache.

Should be fixed as of r49925.
