      Description

      in mod/forum/subscription.php §144 uses

      $users = get_course_users($course->id, 'firstname ASC, lastname ASC', $subscriberlist);

      deprecated call. When using non standard roles that have capabilities for forum, no users are shown in subscription list.

      following code :

      $coursecontext = get_context_instance(CONTEXT_COURSE, $COURSE->id);
      $users = get_users_by_capability($coursecontext, 'mod/forum:initialsubscriptions', '');

      fixes the issue, at least as expected behaviour, but may have functionnal side effects I do not imagine.

      do the get_group_users generate same problem ?
