--- Comment #3 from Krinkle <> ---
Raising priority. This is making maintenance of rules very hard because we have
to hardcode all user groups that contain a certain right instead of being code
the actual intent via the user right.

Plus it is not just annoying to work around, it is causing problems as global
sysops, stewards, globalinterface users often get hit by a disallowing abuse
filter in routine maintenance because the local wiki doesn't know about these

So, for example, in globaleditinterface, if some wiki (*cough*, has an abuse filter rule to essentially protect user
subpages users from editing by other users (except sysops bots etc. and other
whitelisted user groups), I am unable to edit their pages even though I'm
supposed to be able to edit protected pages and explicitly user script

If they were able to look for the "bot" right (instead of bot group), and
"edituserjs" or "protect" right (instead of sysop), this would avoid having to
update all filters when local groups change, and will automatically also work
as expected for global users.
