Description Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason 2005-03-07 06:49:24 UTC
This patch to includes/Article.php and languages/Language.php (HEAD) removes the
confirmation checkbox from deletion, protection and unprotection pages, this
reduces the steps an admin needs to take to three steps from the previous four.

Before the patch the deletion process is the following:
1) follow the "delete"
2) fill in a reason for the deletion
3) check the deletion confirmation checkbox ("Yes, I really want to delete this
4) submit the request via the "delete" button.

This patch removes step 3 as shown above, the change has previously been
discussed on the wikitech-l mailing list in this thread:

The patch against languages/Language.php   	 

A new patch which only removes the 'confirmcheck' message since the
'confirmprotect' and 'confirmunprotect' messages are used elsewhere on the same
page (which is a bug in itself..)
