In an upgraded TWiki you may see this warning in configure

Many will have had this enabled because you needed this at one point as a work around for a now resolved bug.

Warning: Deprecated {MapUserToWikiName} setting is inconsistent with {Register}{AllowLoginName}. {MapUserToWikiName} will be ignored.

Unless you hack LocalSite.cfg at file level you never get rid of this warning. Wouldn't it be better if configure just removed it?

I know configure cannot remove unknown settings because they could belong to plugins or contribs or local hacks. But since we have made code for this specific value maybe the checker should remove this specific one.

It's only a warning. i'm not comfortable removing it; someone is bound to get bitten if we do. The message clearly states it's deprecated, let's just leave it at that.


Well. At least we can make the warning so it tells how to get rid of it.

I have it ready to checkin.
