Where does that is supposed to log to? Logstash? On-wiki log that is accessible to functionaries (if we want to do T210919 and T209749)? If so, then the messages shall be localizable and not be hardcoded in code.

Up next might be compromising a steward and global lock everyone else out before losing permissions, but if you can't log in, have fun identifying yourself to operations to restore access, and deal with the attacker. Securing permissions with e.g. OATHAuth is a problem if the authenticator key gets compromised too, though that's less likely, therefore its favored that sysops be required to use OATH, IMHO

- If a compromised sysop blocks all other sysops/crats, there have to be ways for the other sysops to unblockself and stop the compromised account
- If a sysop blocks self for any reason, there is no point to allow to unblock self. Possible way to achieve this is to look in the last log message to see if its a self action

@Pamputt please confirm if that's what you meant to do and if yes, confirm if it's working as expected

Yes, fallback, and is to be translated.

Closing because since the special site-wide behavior was reverted in the subtask, there's no longer a special site-wide configuration other than default mode=categories that this task refers to.

Reassigning since otherwise the task will be stalled on for years if not dealt with. Months passed but there is no logo:
So to summarize, @IKhitron wants to user-override the categorytree expanders (mode=all) while browsing a category page (on the page, and not the special page, although it has the same default behavior) without setting it (mode=all) as site default for all users on the wiki while the default is mode=categories , without having to URLhack the page every time. Normal browsing case across categories.

Default is to show only categories. Per ^ a preferences option is wanted for user own override from site default option so that the user won't have to select view mode on Special:CategoryTree every time you open that special page.
@Kipod Special:CategoryTree has a setting to show only subcategories, only pages that are not files, or all pages, if you didn't notice.
There's a difference between viewing subcategories and pages outright on the category page itself (the default is indeed to expand only subcategories) and viewing the subcategories via the category view link that goes to Special:CategoryTree/desiredcategory that shows also included pages when the All pages viewing mode is selected on the same page.

@Cumbril much better. Point the above claim on the local community, and decide which rightset autopatrolled are going to have, if different from default (autopatrol to autopatrol own revisions). Hewiki for example let autopatrollers see Special:UnwatchedPages.
first proposed creating Autopatrollers group and right – to have some right that can be used as a flag. But then I thought, why use autopatrol right if the Mediawiki software allows creating any arbitrary right.
What are the downsides of creating a new user right (other than being useless for true security)?

@Aklapper : I chose Create Subtask straight from the parent task. Subscribers, assignees, projects were pre-filled and carried over.

Reopenng due to T149840
I referred to the variable, not you as logos-creator :D

Smell like another instance of what we're been already seeing with trwiki, trwikiquote (T144638), and ruwiki (T144599) asking for new permissions groups to delegate rights based on classes of editors. Remember that sensitive rights such as editinterface, gadgets-edit, gadgets-definition-edit, editusercss, edituserjs are not to be grantable by sysops . According to w:et:ListGroupRights , so-called "tools" are actually gadgets.
