Superprotect user right, Comming to a wiki near you

K. Peachey-2
Lets all welcome the new overlord Erik.

Add a new protection level called "superprotect"
Assigned to nobody by default. Requested by Erik Möller for the purposes
of protecting pages such that sysop permissions are not sufficient to


edit them.

Someone clearly can't take criticism of their projects well.

Ha, you'd think so! ;-)

In reality so far, the only known application was to lock the common.js
at de.wikipedia, to prevent some crazy admin(s) from breaking the wiki.


Which incidentally shows that "will not break the wiki" really IS the
minimal admin criterion, and is not trivial at all }:-)

sincerely,
