Description Marco 2006-10-29 17:28:31 UTC
Hi all, I have created an extension which allows to store permissions in MySQL
table and no longer in Localsettings.php. I would be very happy if someone could
look into the code and tell me if it is bad/good and if it can be put into
MediaWiki's SVN repository.

Comment 4 Sumana Harihareswara 2011-12-23 18:29:12 UTC
Marco, thanks for writing this. I added the "need-review" keyword to indicate
that your code awaits review.  (I'm guessing your extension probably needs updating to work with MediaWiki's current trunk, though.)  You might just want to apply for commit access and commit your extension to Subversion to get review faster -- see .  Sorry for the wait!
Comment 5 Sumana Harihareswara 2012-02-10 02:34:46 UTC
Marco, if you are still interested in this issue, please drop in to our IRC channel (info at ) to talk about your approach with us.  (The code you wrote no longer works with MediaWiki's codebase.)  Thanks!  I'm sorry for the delay in response.
Comment 6 Sam Reed (reedy) 2012-02-10 02:40:42 UTC
This is probably something that has little value moving to the database alone, it really should just be done as part of the larger config overhaul (2012, fingers crossed!), rather than then having another format to migrate away from...
Comment 7 Sumana Harihareswara 2014-09-23 19:55:37 UTC
The config overhaul - you mean ?
