Description Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2004-10-24 17:01:50 UTC
Interface should be provided to easily assign Anonymous and logged in user
to a group.
Actually done in DefaultSettings.php with $wgAnonGroupId $wgLoggedInGroupId 
which is ugly.
Comment 1 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2004-10-24 17:02:36 UTC
Probably need to implement the administration interface to replace
DefaultSettings / LocalSettings system.
Comment 2 Jamie Hari 2005-10-14 04:30:17 UTC
I think this was dealt with in 1.5.0...
Comment 3 Rob Church 2005-10-14 13:12:19 UTC
Yes, the functionality you describe has, I believe, been implemented with the
MediaWiki 1.5 release, which includes a new system for user rights management.
See for more details, including
an explanation of how to implement this feature.
