Patch needs improvement: set
Triage Stage: UnreviewedAccepted
Type: BugCleanup/optimization

The following discussion happened in #django-dev when this ticket was filed. It was decided to deprecate the setting rather than fix the templatetag (like the patch does).

28-19:16:49 daniellinds ericholscher: Yeah, those are fine. The question is still remove banned checks from feeds or provide a similar lookup in the TT.
28-19:17:21 ericholsche Seems they should probably go the way of the profanities list
28-19:20:52      jezdez technically we can remove the settings that aren't used in Django, IMO
28-19:21:07      jezdez not sure about COMMENTS_BANNED_USERS_GROUP though
28-19:21:57      jezdez we could remove it and provide a custom LatestCommentFeed subclass in the release notes that shows how to override the items method adding that limitation
28-19:22:27 ericholsche That probably seems best. If someone is depending on that setting, their code is broken anyways
28-19:22:50 ericholsche i guess unless they just use comments feeds
28-19:23:19      jezdez well, it's definitely backwards incompatible, but has a good migration path
28-19:23:30      jezdez s/good/simple/
28-19:23:53 ericholsche it feels a lot like:
28-19:24:03      jezdez yup
