Description Carl Fürstenberg 2007-01-20 00:45:25 UTC
Sometimes you want to have scripts funtion slightly different if you are admin
or not, and it's sometimes rather diffcult to do that. So I propose that a
variable is added, for example "wgUserGroup", that contain the usergroup(s). the
only problem is that if it only should have the "highest" group, or if it should
contain an array of all groups, for example: 

  wgUserGroups = [ 'autoconfirmed' , 'sysop' ];

updated patch

seems like User::getGroups() don't reply with all we want, so I have changed it
to User::getEffectiveGroups();
