I've been thinking about this. Would you prefer to filter simply by log_action ('rights', 'autopromote', or NULL for some weird entries), or "old rights contained group: autoconfirmed", "new rights contained group: templateeditor" etc.? Or all of those possible filters?

I think all filters are the best, because:

  • You can search for the laast people who have been sysoped, or for example for dewiki
  • You can search for all editors, who got their rights via autopromote, can tell them, what the should do not with their rights, and control their work at the first time

So all in all both filters alone are great, but together it's pretty good because you can get good into details without manual searching

The rest would be filtering based on parameters, which as I wrote on other tasks:

might be problematic since the parameters get stored in various different formats that aren't really easy to query
