After updating a wiki form MW 1.27.0 to MW 1.27.1 it becomes inaccessible for anonymous users, i.e. they cannot read a page nor log in. I believe this may very well be caused by the fix for T129738.
> Permission error
> You do not have permission to read this page, for the following reason:
> You must confirm your email address before editing pages. Please set and validate your email address through your user preferences.
$wgEmailConfirmToEdit = true;
$wgBlockDisablesLogin = true;
$wgGroupPermissions['*']['edit'] = false;
After setting `$wgEmailConfirmToEdit` to "false" the wiki is back in business again. Since I do not want to loose this setting ... As a matter of fact all "my" wikis which require e-mail confirmation for editing also use the newly "fixed" configuration setting.
