Ævar has checked in a patch that changes "$wgDisableUploads=false;" to
"$wgEnableUploads=true;" (per bug 578). However, when upgrading a wiki, the
value will not be changed in the existing LocalSettings.php, so a wiki on which
uploads have already been enabled will find them switched back off (the default
value will not be overridden, as it has a different name). This contrasts with
previous upgrades, where [I believe] the settings remained valid.
Ideally, the installer should somehow check to see whether uploads are currently
enabled, and either change the appropriate line *for* the user, or, failing
that, make sure the user is aware that the change is necessary. I'm not sure
*how* to do this, exactly, but it's mighty confusing without it.
I guess a "last resort" is to make it very visible in the release notes that
this setting needs changing.
Added a note about it in RELEASE-NOTES.
Marking it as fixed.
The note in RELEASE-NOTES is within a list of "bugfixes, small features, and a
few experimental things".
Please add an appropriate notice to UPGRADE.
There is indeed a notice in UPGRADE now.
