It may be useful to also do this for other auto-promoted groups.

To be useful, the notification should mention what this implies in practice, taken from $wgGroupPermissions and communicated with a logic similar to permissionserrorstext-withaction (but keep in mind bug 32683), especially as it varies a lot across projecys.

Presumably $wgRateLimits, $wgNamespaceProtection and $wgRestrictionLevels would be too much to mention, though we know that sometimes those can be extremely tedious as well, especially on some particularly restrictive projects*; luckily $wgAddGroups and $wgRemoveGroups don't seem to give any permission to autoconfirmed users on any Wikimedia project.

(*) And until now I didn't know that newbies can't edit File namespace on

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
