Description P. Birken 2008-05-21 09:27:23 UTC
In the log you can see that a user who has been an editor and had his rights removed gets autopromoted again. Not a problem in this case, because he requested to have his editor rights removed and is actually glad to have them back, but...

So far, I don't think there's a reason to stop autopromotion, we will handle the few cases where things get wrong manually, but please fix this ASAP.

All demotions are still logged, but the check just had a typo. Fixed in r35143.
