Progress on the Flagged Revisions front

private musings
Because I'm an idiot, I tried to send this before subscribing to this
particular list. I don't have high hopes of understanding much herein,
but hope the below is clear :-)

I gather Jimbo is putting some sort of proposal before the (WMF) board
too, and look forward to hearing exactly what that entails - it'll be
great to read something out in public somewhere fairly soon - however
per the below I hope readers of this list will concur that the best
step forward is to enable to extension to facilitate the trial :-)

cheers,

PM.

This proposal;
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Flagged_protection_and_patrolled_revisions

would seem to have a strong consensus in support, following a 9 day poll here;
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_talk:Flagged_protection_and_patrolled_revisions/Poll

It's a very gentle implementation, but the description is crystal
clear, and hopefully this is clear and defined enough for the dev.s to
'switch on'.

If more information or parameters are required, it would be fantastic
for decision makers to try and be explicit in how best to clear the
path - perhaps the feature can be turned on by the first of next
month? ;-)

cheers,

PM.

83% support is plenty for switch-flicking. If you add a bug to
bugzilla (<http://bugzilla.wikimedia.org>), we'll probably get to it
next week (after Berlin -- we would like to have some people around
when we do it).

I'm pleased to see that English Wikipedia has come up with a
compromise acceptable to most people :)

It's all in the queue; further code and UI cleanup is ongoing.

Also note that the 'patrolled revisions' aspect is particularly messy to
implement. Some changes have been made but more are still needed to the
extension. I'm tempted to split off patrolling into its own code other
tables.

Could you elaborate a bit?

Thanks,
