--- Comment #3 from Tomasz W. Kozlowski <tom...@twkozlowski.net> ---
These are all unrelated things, Dan.

It is my understanding that extensions should generally use user rights rather
than user groups to determine access (after watching a discussion between
kaldari and Reedy on #wikimedia-whatever). 

In this particular case, there is little difference because the gwtoolset user
group is the only one which has the gwtoolset user right (at least in the
Wikimedia universe), but I think it's now more about code quality and
conventions as well as about the third-party potential.

The discussion on Commons is irrelevant to this; we're talking about the
extension code, not about local per-wiki settings, which from now on will be
defined in
<https://noc.wikimedia.org/conf/highlight.php?file=InitialiseSettings.php>, and
not directly in the extension as it was before bug 58607 got fixed.
