Description Brion Vibber 2004-10-22 09:47:16 UTC
A number of things try to write to the database when read-only mode is on. This can produce 
annoying error messages when attached to a really read-only database that's locked, or can cause 
data corruption if you're simply implicitly assuming the wiki will not write.

The user_newtalk expiration check on login is one example. Other expirations (objectcache, 
ipblocks) should be checked also, and there may be others.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2005-03-27 02:22:47 UTC
1.4.0 released; kicking back to 1.5 blockers.
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2005-10-29 03:10:35 UTC
The database class now silently drops all write attempts when read-only mode is on.
