Do not override wgEchoDefaultNotificationTypes['emailuser'] on wmf wikis
Closed, ResolvedPublic


With change T56130 I added a new key 'emailuser' to $wgEchoDefaultNotificationTypes, because in my opinion getting an email notification about the fact, that a user sends you a email seems useless.

It is possible to avoid the override on wmf wikis for $wgEchoDefaultNotificationTypes['emailuser']? Thanks

Looks like we're also making welcome notifications send an email with this override... But yes, I think we need to deal with the emailuser part before 1.26wmf24 hits non-test sites tomorrow.

This is sort of done but I'd like to hear what @Catrope has to say about the welcome config before closing.

Sorry for the late response.

Not sending an email for welcome notifs seems fine. I'll write a config patch for that after running it by @Jdforrester-WMF.
