LocalSettings: Hide "minordefault" and "forceeditsummary" user options
There is little wrong in letting the users configure these settings, but setting "Mark all edits as minor by default" to true or "Prompt me when entering a blank edit summary" to false has bad impact on the quality of the wiki edits, because such users tend to ignore the fundamental rules [1] and there is nothing to remind it to them. Disabling these user preferences and forcing the default values according to this patch will decrease the effort of the Maintenance Team spent on guiding the editors and also generally increase the quality of user contributions. This will solve FS#46190 [2]. [1] https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/ArchWiki:Contributing#The_3_fundamental_rules [2] https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/46190
