Request for RevisionDelete[edit]

Home page
MediaWiki configuration (user rights) change.
Installation notes
The following line needs to be added/uncommented to LocalSettings.php:
$wgGroupPermissions['sysop']['deleterevision']  = true;
Reason for request
This change will allow sysops to hide the revision text and the edit summary, essentially performing a partial deletion. This is useful as it means sysops no longer have to delete pages such as Help:Ask an account question and restore selected revisions (which there are some issues with when on large pages) when a user accidentally posts personal information, such as access keys and passwords.
What else uses it
The Wikimedia family uses Oversight; RevisionDelete effectively superseded Oversight.
Possible pitfalls
None that we are aware of except that adding something may break something else.
