Description Guttorm Flatabø 2005-02-28 16:01:32 UTC
Currently all MediaWiki messages (in the MediaWiki namespace) are protected by
default, can be unprotected, but the unprotection has no effect - they will
still be protected.

While it might be desirable to have MediaWikipages protected by default, one
should be able to also unprotect them.
Comment 1 JeLuF 2005-03-01 22:57:28 UTC
Many of them allow HTML. Unprotecting them would allow XSS attacks.
Comment 2 Guttorm Flatabø 2005-03-02 10:19:24 UTC
Then make it possible to unprotect those using wiki syntax or wait till you have
converted (almost) all to wiki syntax.
Comment 3 Guttorm Flatabø 2005-06-16 11:58:47 UTC
This has also been brought up in bug #625, and bug #2414 is kind of related.
