Several handlers in Plugins don't have access to the meta object. This makes checking permissions a real PITA, as the topic has to be re-read.

There's a workaround, and that's to use $context->{can_render_meta}, but that's a hack at best, and unreliable.

The right solution is to add $meta into the right places in the following handlers.

  • 'beforeCommonTagsHandler',
  • 'commonTagsHandler',
  • 'afterCommonTagsHandler',
  • 'afterEditHandler',

Proposed for 4.2, TWiki:Codev.PassMetaToHandlers

-- TWiki:Main/CrawfordCurrie - 16 Mar 2007

Checked in, but revertable until a release meeting agrees/times out.
