Description David Benbennick 2006-04-01 23:14:25 UTC
 Under February 17, [[User:xaosflux]] is a red link, presumably because it was
lowercase in [[Special:Makesysop]].

The problem, of course, is that this part of MediaWiki is using some weird code
to generate the link, instead of the normal routine that's used everywhere else
in the program.  For that reason, there are probably other bugs in the same code.

An easy way to fix the problem is to simply make
[[MediaWiki:Bureaucratlogentry]] more general.  Let it be

$1 [[User:$2|$2]] set rights for "[[User:$3]]" ''($4)''

(where $1, $2, $3, and $4 are the obvious parameters).  An added benefit of that
solution is that the log list becomes more flexible, and more easily customized.

This should now be sorted in SVN trunk, r13655. The problem is not the general
title handling code, as it happens; it's the fact that the custom extension in
use on Wikimedia sites does something stupid when it saves a log item. The
regular, core-code  Special:Userrights page does not.
