Description Melancholie 2006-01-09 18:39:27 UTC
For the German Wiktionary we want to have the edit patrolling 
function reactivated. For the beginning we want this function 
for sysops only. For this purpose the following lines have to 
be added to LocalSettings.php:

$wgUseRCPatrol = true;
$wgOnlySysopsCanPatrol = true;

A discussion about that issue can be found there: [http://de.
wiktionary.org/wiki/Wiktionary:Meinungsbild#Die_Funktion_.
22Gepr.C3.BCfte_.C3.84nderung.22_wieder_aktivieren_lassen_.
28patrolled_edit.29 de.wikt:MB]
Comment 1 spacebirdy 2006-01-09 21:50:40 UTC
Link to the discussion (the above one seems not to work:
http://de.wiktionary.org/wiki/Wiktionary:Meinungsbild#Die_Funktion_.22Gepr.C3.BCfte_.C3.84nderung.22_wieder_aktivieren_lassen_.28patrolled_edit.29


For the future we would like to have the possibility to asign that function also
to elected users.
We asked in the #mediawiki channel if this could be possible and got an answer
of "robchurch":
<pre>
robchurch $wgGroupPermissions['patrol']['patrol'] = true;
robchurch You'll find you can then add people to the "patrol" group.
</pre>

How to assign "patrol" group to users since the only groups a bureaucrat can
assign is "sysop","bureaucrat" (special:makesysop). 
Special:Userrights is only available to local installation isn't it?

That's correct. Another fine example of where context is important; I had no
idea the user in the IRC channel was talking about a Wikimedia wiki; it sounded
like they wanted the feature for their own wiki. It's still technically possible
for this to be configured for a Wikimedia wiki, but it wouldn't be assignable by
anyone other than Stewards. Having said that, a revised version of our
customised Makesysop page is in the works, since En. is currently hoping to
grant rollback to certain trusted users, and would require local bureaucrats to
be able to set and revoke this flag...
Comment 5 Melancholie 2006-02-06 13:51:55 UTC
Because it seems that this bug maybe has become a little bit
confusing, I repeat what has to be done:

Please add the following two lines to LocalSettings.php:

$wgUseRCPatrol = true;
$wgOnlySysopsCanPatrol = true;
Comment 6 Melancholie 2006-02-06 13:57:27 UTC
P.S.: All thoughts after my initial request are
      not under consideration at this moment.

Just to point out Wikimedia wiki configuration isn't done like this. ;-)
Comment 8 Melancholie 2006-02-07 00:16:55 UTC
Sorry, but I thought [[m:Help:Patrolled_edit]] would describe
the correct procedure! Nevertheless, there has to be a relatively
easy way to activate the Patrol Function, I think (you know how?).
After all, it already had been activated a year ago, so it just has
to be re-enabled. And other (especially small) wikis (at Wikicities,
etc.) are also using this very helpful feature, by the way.

Best regards, Melancholie
Comment 9 Rob Church 2006-02-07 18:53:10 UTC
Yes, yes, it's simple enough for us to enable it. I was just pointing out that
we don't do it like that ourselves. Didn't mean to confuse.

Sorry, I did't mean to confuse, maybe I should post this as a seperate bug.

There is consensus on de.wikt, that this should be applied for now for sysops only

Thanks and greetings
