Description This, that and the other (TTO) 2013-12-24 10:48:00 UTC
This config variables dates back to r34065 from April 2008. Quoth Brion:

 * Enable user search in Special:Newpages
 * This is really a temporary hack around an index install bug on some Wikipedias.
 * Kill it once fixed.

$wgEnableNewpagesUserFilter is still set to false on some wikis:

'wgEnableNewpagesUserFilter' => array(
	'default' => true,
	'frwiki' => false,
	'nlwiki' => false,
	'svwiki' => false,

I can't find any bug report or other reason why this config variable even exists, or why it is set to false on these three wikis.

I think it is time to get rid of this.

Someone with access to the cluster should run "show indexes in recentchanges" on frwiki, nlwiki, and svwiki to ensure the rc_user_text index has been added, and then we can kill it.

CC-ing Sean.
Comment 3 Sean Pringle 2014-01-27 12:45:29 UTC
