Did someone cleanup wiki users? I used to have a login (unless I am
going senile!) and have edited the wiki (especially over in the old
Archer section bits) quite a lot. But now my edits are like:


host86-146-234-176 Add archer-pmuldoon-python-value-infcall branch and description.

(from the "Info" link on a wiki page).

Where the username (in this case, my old one) has been replaced with
the originating host. It's no big deal - it was trivial to create a
new one and get editing privileges setup. But I am curious about
what happened there. Apologies if this has been answered. I did a
rudimentary search of the mailing list and nothing came back that
looked promising as an answer.

Cheers

Phil

There is regular automatic cleanup of wiki users at sourceware.
It is designed to exclude users in the EditorGroup however; so this
should not be happening to your account. I'll keep an eye on it.

According to <https://sourceware.org/gdb/wiki/EditorGroup?action=info>,
Phil was not listed since the beginning, so that may explain...

Yeah but the edit history of that page only goes back to April this
year. I probably did not make any edits from April till now, but I
definitely did before then. Quite a lot in the Archer project parts.
It looks to me like a complete purge of the file, probably because of
the curse of spammers. It's, as I said, no big deal. I was just
curious what had happened and if my account had been compromised.

Cheers

Phil
