      Description

      Our developers and theme designers keep smuggling in cookies, this is not compatible with $CFG->cookiehttponly and is against some privacy laws.

      Simply stop relying on cookies and if necessary use user preferences.

      Offenders:

      • admin roles UI
      • lib/cookies.js
      • scorm data model
      • repository
      • anomaly theme

      Solution:
      1/ educate integrators and developers - see MDL-17084 for ajax user preferences
      2/ fix the code
      3/ fix dev docs
