I'm curious why this feature was removed http://drupalcode.org/project/shield.git/blobdiff/5dacfc804508a76c3fbd0d...

It seems like a good feature to me.

This is just a git diff 5dacfc8 -R

The scenario where I want to use this:
* My dev site is an automatic copy of my live site
* My dev site has a different settings.php which points at a different DB
* I can do $conf['shield_state'] = 1; in settings.php so the module settings are the same on all sites, but it's only actually enabled on dev

Why would shield reproduce what http://drupal.org/project/environment_modules can do?

A short history: the original idea of the triggering the status on/off was initiated by NeverGone, see http://drupal.org/node/1369404. The idea was implemented, then dicussed and finally rejected at #drupal.hu IRC channel.

Status:Needs review» Closed (works as designed)

There is no need for this, given environment_modules.

Thanks for documenting it on the project page, pkiraly :)
