wgFlaggedRevsAutopromoteInRC was removed.

Also, as of /trunk, autopromote was moved to the core code. If this is really needed we can have:

  • Have a boolean $wgAutopromoteOnceInRC var
  • Have an array of booleans wgAutopromoteOnceInRC var (for each group)

When you created $wgFlaggedRevsAutopromoteInRC, it was a desirable solution. If it would be helpful, I can again arrange a poll around Polish community about the usefulness of the autopromote on RC.

PS. In my opinion, autopromotion should be visible on RC, the same as other user rights changes. Maybe it's a bit floody on large wikis, so variable to activate this option would be the best solution.

This information on Special:RecentChanges helps tracking changes on wiki. It would be also broadcasted on IRC channels, so one can watch only IRC channel, without going repeatedly to wiki rights log. Current situation is confusing for users, because some events are displayed on recent changes (manual group membership change) and some not (autopromote, changes through meta-wiki).

$wgAutopromoteOnceLogInRC added in r91931. Not live.

Doesn't this need to be re-opened so that someone can make it live after deployment?

You can make another report that is a Wikimedia shell bug ("enable wgAutopromoteOnceLogInRC on plwiki").

This bug is a blocker for bug29876, so I suspect there is no need to open separate bug, but I would like to point out that similar configuration should be for plwikiosurce (look at previous configuration at http://noc.wikimedia.org/conf/highlight.php?file=flaggedrevs.php).

wgAutopromoteOnceLogInRC set on both wikis (though not used by code yet).
