  • Component changed from Forms to Documentation
  • Needs documentation unset
  • Needs tests unset
  • Patch needs improvement unset
  • Triage Stage changed from Unreviewed to Accepted

As I noted on #9058 this is a documentation not a code problem. That makes the patch wrong. I will be fixing the documentation shortly.

(In [9016]) Fixed #9027 -- Corrected the documentation about can_delete default value. Thanks gsf for catching this.

Great, though I don't agree with the documentation fix. See #9060.
