We would like to request a change to restrict access to the Central Activity Log for Oversighters which we launched last week. The current version of this activity log is now disclosing information that should not be public, and should only be available to oversighters.
Our updated requirements for this restriction of the central activity log are based on these assumptions:
- Only oversighters and staff will be able to access to the central Article Feedback Activity log, once this new code is released
- This restriction will be implemented by using the log_type='suppress' for this oversighter log. This should hide the log, because $wgLogRestrictions = array( 'suppress' => 'suppressionlog' ); is set in DefaultSettings.php, meaning that log entries with
log_type='suppress' can only be viewed by users with the 'suppressionlog' right.
- We will also remove the 'del/undel' function now shown to oversighters/staff in the current version of the Article Feedback Activity log, since it isn't really needed for this type of content. However, if this is not easy to do, or would take a long time to do, we can live with it for this release.
Here is our proposed new format for this centralized AFT5 activity log for oversighters:
