Globalization on login not rechecking ownership of homewiki leads to adding unowned accounts to the global account
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Another case with the root of bug 70468. The fix should be the same as we did for the web interface-- pass $checkHome = true to the merge function.

Patch made against 1.25wmf1, assumes that the patch for bug 70468 was also deployed. Cherry-picks cleanly against 1.25wmf2.


I think that fixes the issue. Let's deploy it.

script to break up bad global accounts

Script that goes through the log files which I copied to terbium from fluorine, figures out if the user had a homewiki picked that was different from the current one, and then deletes the localuser/globaluser rows, and invalidates the CA cache, and local wiki caches.

Has a dry run mode, manually set the 'simulate' member variable to false to make it run.


My dry-runs indicate that 581 global accounts will be broken up, which includes 4309 local accounts.
