Need way to remove throttle overrides
Open, MediumPublic


In most cases, most overrides will want to just expire and go away. But sometimes, there may be a reason to actually just delete it outright, such if it's being abused

A delete link should be added to Special:ThrottleOverrideList

If done ontop of it can be made like block list, and put (delete | change throttle) next to the expiration date

Is there an easier way than having another special page for this? I'd like to avoid unnecessary special pages, but it seems something like Special:Unblock would be the easiest thing.

I've already done most of this, will look at the few remaining cosmetics next week and upload the patch afterwards.

Change 393439 had a related patch set uploaded (by EddieGP; owner: EddieGP):
[mediawiki/extensions/ThrottleOverride@master] Add feature to remove exemptions

I'm not actively working on this any more, but still willing to rebase and correct the patches in case anyone cares to review them.
