Cvars to be whitelisted for pure servers
In the 0.1.0 preview we have started with the concept of pure servers, this is to identify which servers have not changed core elements of game. They therefore are guaranteed to have the same gameplay as other pure servers. This works by whitelisting cvars or groups of cvars that are allowed to be changed without affecting gameplay.
Currently many of them are not yet whitelisted, simply because we have too many cvars to manually go through them all. This tracker item is intended to request whitelisting of new cvars that do not affect gameplay, and thus should be allowed to change by server admins who would like to maintain a pure server.

For server admins, you can request which cvars are not whitelisted yet by doing: "cmd cvar_purechanges" when connected to the server.
First request of some cvars:
forced respawn and spawnshieldtime may be changing the gameplay a little, but I think these are okay to whitelist.

sv_allowdownloads should be whitelisted, too
[2011-10-22 12:15:45] // this server runs at modified gameplay settings: [2011-10-22 12:15:45] sv_allowdownloads "0" // "1"
pk3 downloads via http and the download of csprogs.dat still works with sv_allowdownloads 0
But it prevents downloads of other server files... eg bots.txt - cmd download bots.txt
