Description MrPete 2007-03-07 18:57:18 UTC
Sometimes, an external auth module is in complete control of user name, Email,
Nickname. If so, it only causes confusion to allow user editing in the MW

Patchfile attached.

Comment 2 Rob Church 2007-03-07 20:46:44 UTC
I think I'd rather see these implemented as methods to the AuthPlugin interface,
rather than polluting the configuration namespace with more global variables...

Your wish is my command :)

Here's a new patch, that implements the same thing via $wgAuth.

via $wgAuth.

You might want to check your encoding, there's a couple of strange changes at the 
bottom of that..."ævar" is being changed to "ævar" for example, and there are some 
other oddities.

$wgAuth patch update w/ UTF8

Thanks, Phil! I needed to modify my tool settings for MW, defaulting to UTF8
files. (This is my first OSS project that has made the shift.)

Attached file implements $wgAuth version of the feature, and has no UTF8

Patch does not apply to the new preferences system, but on the other hand it should be easy to port it.

Done in r50086
