normalises keys that are added to MessageCache (1.03 KB, patch)

normalises keys that are added to MessageCache

The following bug was found and examined in mediawiki 1.10.0 but a short look at the source code of 1.11 lets me assume its still in there too. Version 1.8 is not affected.

The method get() of the class MessageObject in include/MessageCache.php enforces message normalisation by lowercasing the first char of a key and replacing all underscores with blanks in these keys. Since this normalisation is not applied when messages are stored in the cache (e.g. by method addMessages), this breaks extensions which do not us normalised keys (like PageProtectionPlus). The attached patch applies normalisation on message adding.

Not really worth the overhead. The extensions that misuse this should be fixed.

What overhead?  It's like a five-line fix and reportedly a regression.
Comment 3 Aaron Schulz 2009-02-17 15:36:56 UTC
Partly done in r47362
Comment 4 Chad H. 2011-02-14 01:19:37 UTC
addMessages() doesn't exist anymore. Nothing really to fix here, marking INVALID.
