Page protection section of MediaWiki's info action is a bit redundant
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Splitting this off from bug 38536, the current version of the "Page protection" section of MediaWiki's info action (example here: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/MediaWiki?action=info) currently looks something like this:


Page protection

Page protection (create) Allow all users
Page protection (edit) Administrators only
Page protection (move) Administrators only

Page protection (upload) Allow all users

I think this is needlessly redundant. It could be something like this instead:


Page protection

Create protection Allow all users
Edit protection Administrators only
Move protection Administrators only

Upload protection Allow all users

Or even more simply:


Page protection

Create Allow all users
Edit Administrators only
Move Administrators only

Upload Allow all users

Repeating "page protection" five times (as the current interface does) feels weird and wrong.
