DESCRIPTION

A plugin to the MediaWiki::Bot framework to provide steward functions to a bot.

METHODS

import()

Calling import from any module will, quite simply, transfer these subroutines into that module's namespace. This is possible from any module which is compatible with MediaWiki::Bot.

steward_new($data_hashref)

g_block($data_hashref)

This places a global block on an IP or IP range. You can provide either CIDR or classful ranges. To easily place a vandalism block, pass just the IP.

  • ip - the IP or IP range to block. Use a single IP, CIDR range, or classful range.

  • ao - whether to block anon-only; default is true.

  • reason - the log summary. Default is 'cross-wiki abuse'.

  • expiry - the expiry setting. Default is 31 hours.

    $bot->g_block({
        ip     => '127.0.0.1',
        ao     => 0,
        reason => 'silly vandals',
        expiry => '1 week',
    });

    # Or, use defaults
    $bot->g_block('127.0.0.0-127.0.0.255');

g_unblock($data)

Remove the global block affecting an IP or range. The hashref is:

  • ip - the IP or range to unblock. You don't need to convert your range into a CIDR, just pass in your range in xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx-yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy format and let this method do the work.

  • reason - the log reason. Default is 'Removing obsolete block'.

If you pass only the IP, a generic reason will be used.

    $bot->g_unblock({
        ip      => '127.0.0.0-127.0.0.255',
        reason  => 'oops',
    });
    # Or
    $bot->g_unblock('127.0.0.1');

ca_lock($data)

Locks and hides a user with CentralAuth. $data is a hash:

  • user - the user to target

  • lock - whether to lock or unlock the account - default is lock (0=unlocked, 1=locked)

  • hide - how hard to hide the account - default is not at all (0=none, 1=lists, 2=oversight)

  • reason - default is 'cross-wiki abuse'

If you pass in only a username, the account will be locked but not hidden, and the default reason will be used:

    $bot->ca_lock("Mike.lifeguard");
    # Or, the more complete call:
    $bot->ca_lock({
        user    => "Mike.lifeguard",
        reason  => "test",
    });

ca_unlock($data)

Same parameters as ca_lock(), but with the default setting for lock reversed (ie, default is unlock).
