Description H92 2008-04-26 19:31:26 UTC
LocalSettings.php changes:

OK, I need two new user groups in the Norwegian Wikibooks, nowikibooks.

The first one called "patrol" (of course without the "s), with the following abilities:
patrol, autopatrol, rollback

The other one, called "autopatrol" (also without the "s), with the following ability:

That is: A patrol member is able to patrol edits, have his/her edits automatically patrolled, and have the rollback feature. An autopatrol member has his/her edits automatically patrolled.

Enable access for bureaucrats and sysops to the Special:Userrights page with the following:

bureaucrats can add bureaucrat, sysop, bot, autopatrol and patrol
bureaucrats can remove bot, autopatrol and patrol

sysops can add and remove autopatrol and patrol

Actually, the same change was implemented on Jan 1st 08 on nowiki (the Norwegian Wikipedia), see bug 11509. The only difference is that sysops on nowikibooks are (going to be) able to remove patrol as well (because the only bureaucrat is inactive).

To make it easy, I've experimented with what JeLuF pasted into his "Done" message, bug 11509 comment 1, although I can't guarantee that this is correct.
Please take a quick look through it. I've edited "nowiki" to "nowikibooks", and added 'patrol', into the sysop section inside wgRemoveGroups. Since bureaucrats also are sysops there might be possible to remove “ 'patrol', 'autopatrol',” from the bureaucrat section, I don't know, you dev's fix that ;)

'groupOverrides' => array(
    'nowikibooks' => array(
        'patroller' => array( 'patrol' => true, 'autopatrol' => true,
'rollback' => true ),
        'autopatrolled' => array( 'autopatrol' => true ),

'wgAddGroups' => array(
        'nowikibooks' => array(
                'bureaucrat' => array( 'sysop', 'bureaucrat', 'bot',
'patroller', 'autopatrolled' ),
                'sysop' => array( 'patroller', 'autopatrolled' ),

'wgRemoveGroups' => array(
        'nowikibooks' => array(
                'bureaucrat' => array( 'bot', 'patroller', 'autopatrolled' ),
                'sysop' => array( 'patroller', 'autopatrolled' ),

The relevant discussion is here:

The only comment in it is mine. The reason I'm requesting this is that there are a lot of users who are cooperating with several books, making tons of edits (good ones) and thus hiding potential vandalism. This will filter out the good edits leaving the ones which are to be checked.

Sorry, there are so many names, which inevitably leads to confusion. I wrote:

>The first one called "patrol" (of course without the "s), with the following
>patrol, autopatrol, rollback
>The other one, called "autopatrol" (also without the "s), with the following

I meant, the first one called "patroller", the other one called "autopatrolled".

Thanks ;)

Oh and the markbotedits feature for patrollers would be nice too (I actually thought it was included in the rollback feature, but it evidently isn’t).

Sorry for messing this up :S
Comment 3 Siebrand Mazeland 2008-08-18 16:22:43 UTC

I have added the groups and assignment rights as requested.  If there are any questions or concerns, please let me know via this ticket.
