           Summary: Get rid of $wgEnableNewpagesUserFilter
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW

This config variables dates back to r34065 from April 2008. Quoth Brion:

 * Enable user search in Special:Newpages
 * This is really a temporary hack around an index install bug on some
 * Kill it once fixed.

$wgEnableNewpagesUserFilter is still set to false on some wikis:

'wgEnableNewpagesUserFilter' => array(
    'default' => true,
    'frwiki' => false,
    'nlwiki' => false,
    'svwiki' => false,

I can't find any bug report or other reason why this config variable even
exists, or why it is set to false on these three wikis.

I think it is time to get rid of this.
