I've committed some patches to trunk to prevent annoyingly-named groups from being created. Still need to test, copy the patch to stable, and clean up existing annoying groups.

Currently these consist of:

  • lower-case 'cc' -- needs to be deleted from Groups and Group_Members tables.
  • 'GNU/Linux' -- should also be deleted from both tables
  • 'new' -- should also be deleted from both tables
  • 'Manic Street Preachers' -- maybe just rename this in both tables, replacing spaces with underscores.

Can't make those changes myself as I don't have database access.

I accicentally created two groups:
both for Creative Commons.

libre.fm opinted forth URls to http://alpha.libre.fm/group/CC, but when i tried to delete the other group (simply by going to the edit page and deleting everything in all the forms) instead, the other group was affected and now both URLs point to http://alpha.libre.fm/group/cc
