RC patrolling on en.wikipedia was shortly enabled, but was disabled again
because it wasn't suitable to the fast-moving RC-list in that project (and maybe
for other reasons).
But one part of that feature which I liked was patrolling on special:newpages.
That pages moves relatively slowly, and it is a great help to be able to mark
which articles are checked.
Therefore it would be nice to be able to enable patrolling on special:newpages only.
The following patch does:
*Split patrolling into RC-patrolling and NP-patrolling, with a new
$wgUseNPPatrol configuration variable
*add missing 'markedaspatrollederror' and 'markedaspatrollederrortext' texts
(they were also missing before this patch)
*Four combinations of RC and NP enabled are possible:
RC=0, NP=0: As before this patch with patrolling disabled.
RC=1, NP=0: Both edits and new pages can be patrolled, but there is no patrol
markup at special:newpages, and pages visited from special:newpages does not
have a patrol link.
RC=0, NP=1: Only new pages can be patrolled, and the patrol link is only shown
when a page is visited from special:newpages.
RC=1, NP=1: As before this patch with patrolling enabled.
It would also be nice to have the features implemented in Bug 1401 for new page
