Description Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason 2005-06-24 01:05:13 UTC
The "User login/settings" component should be split into "User login" and
"Settings" (or "Preferences") since the two are seperate entities in the
codebase and different logical sections.

This would involve re-marking 110 bugs (as of writng) (see URL).
Comment 1 Zigger 2005-06-24 01:11:16 UTC
Which of these proposed components should cover "user and group rights" (e.g.
bug 767 and dependent bugs)?

Neither, user and group rights have very little to do with user login or
settings, that bug should probably be in the General/Unknown or Database component.

"User preferences" is a less ambiguous name for the second component, so that it
clearly excludes site settings/preferences and access-control settings.

I've recategorised bugs that seemed to belong to a different existing component.
 78 remain.

Agreed, I've made a "User preferences" component, how about a "Session
management" component for the first one? That would cover login/logout and
session management in general (which is in Special:Log(in|out) and in the
$wgUser object.

"Authentication, account creation & session management" would be more accurate,
but it's too long and too technical.  How about "User login/sessions"?  The
describecomponents page can take care of the details.

The bugs were "split" on June 24.
