T279556: Introduce infrastructure for making partial blocks against actions
I consider blocking users from creating pages one of the most useful partial blocks. I'd appreciate it if cswiki could be one of the pilot wikis – let me know when I should ask my community about it.
Also do note that tawiki did create a similar feature via wgRevokePermissions and user groups, see T227618 and:
MariaDB [tawiki_p]> select ug_group, count(*) from user_groups group by ug_group order by count(*) desc; +-----------------+----------+ | ug_group | count(*) | +-----------------+----------+ | bot | 187 | | autopatrolled | 36 | | sysop | 34 | | nocreate | 30 | | rollbacker | 16 | | patroller | 15 | | accountcreator | 4 | | bureaucrat | 4 | | interface-admin | 1 | | ipblock-exempt | 1 | | flow-bot | 1 | +-----------------+----------+ 11 rows in set (0.00 sec) MariaDB [tawiki_p]>
It might be useful to reach out to them and ask if they'd be interested in trying this out.
Please remember that T280808 should be resolved before enabling on production non-test wikis (per that task description, "We could go ahead with the second option while we're just testing with a handful of actions on beta, but we should decide which solution to implement before enabling on production sites.")
Hey Danny. Our team bandwidth is a bit low at the moment. We will probably stay with the second option unless we see issues with it. We can come back and work on implementing the table option in the future when we have more time on our hands. Does that sound acceptable to you?
Where are we with this? Just wondering about T280532: Remove partial action blocks feature flag, and relation to MW-1.37-release.
If we want to bump this out to MW-1.38-release (or eventually some later release) due to it not being ready/tested enough (due to the team having to work on other stuff) that's fine, but we do need to update the text in DefaultSettings.php at least :)
