           Summary: FlaggedRevs should not reinvent the autopromote wheel
           Product: MediaWiki extensions
           Version: any
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Normal
         Component: FlaggedRevs
        AssignedTo: jschulz_4...@msn.com
        ReportedBy: simetrical+wikib...@gmail.com
                CC: innocentkil...@gmail.com


$wgFlaggedRevsAutopromote serves a very similar purpose to $wgAutopromote, but
it's restricted to the 'editor' group.  Each system implements a bunch of
features the other doesn't.  The features of $wgFlaggedRevsAutopromote should
be merged into $wgAutopromote, and the former should be dropped (or rather
reinterpreted in terms of $wgAutopromote, for back-compat).  Some features of
$wgFlaggedRevsAutopromote aren't feasibly implementable on every
User::getEffectiveGroups() call, but you could add some new mode that works
using explicit groups instead of implicit, and is only checked on certain
events like edit.
