Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-11-23 10:18:46 UTC
Dear friends,

The actions from [[meta:Special:Log]] which relate to other projects then
[[meta:]] itself are *not* duplicated in the logs of the individual wiki's.

They should be added there because it is much easier to watch one logfile only
then a bunch of them.

best regards reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]

What sort of actions would be performed on meta that relate to the pages on
other wikis? The answer is none. The meta logs show deletions, user creations,
blocking, etc. on that wiki; the content of that wiki doesn't have much to do
with the content of the other wiki, more the administration. I don't see that
this is at all necessary.

I imagine Reinhardt is referring to the "Bureaucrat" log -
[[meta:Special:Log/Rights]] - which on meta lists permissions changes carried
out centrally by "Stewards", such as granting/removing sysop status on small
wikis, or setting bot status. 

It would indeed probably be a good idea to add an entry to the log of the target
wiki as well, although the lack of a single login system means the reference to
the user making the change might be kinda broken. The "user:anthere@metawiki"
style might half-work like it does on meta, but it might need a numeric user id,
not a name. In which case, perhaps there could be a pseudo-account called
"Remote Steward Action" or something (like "MediaWiki default" and "Conversion
