Wikimedia has migrated from Bugzilla to Phabricator. Bug reports should be created and updated in Wikimedia Phabricator instead. Please create an account in Phabricator and add your Bugzilla email address to it.
Wikimedia Bugzilla is read-only. If you try to edit or create any bug report in Bugzilla you will be shown an intentional error message.

Description Cary Bass 2007-11-09 18:06:46 UTC
Change default text in Wikimedia projects for MediaWiki:Sitesupport to read "Donate".
Change default text in Wikimedia projects for MediaWiki:Sitesupport-url to read "Wikimedia:Donate"
Comment 1 Robert Leverington 2007-11-09 18:08:39 UTC
MediaWiki isn't used by just Wikimedia, there are many other wikis where this change would be inappropriate.
Comment 2 JeLuF 2007-11-09 22:13:25 UTC
No. This makes no sense. There is no Wikimedia: namespace on most Wikimedia projects. Most Wikimedia projects don't use the English language. => WONTFIX.

There is no reference to any community discussion => WONTFIX.

I believe that the "wikimedia:" was used as the interwiki prefix for the Wikimedia Foundation official site.  If you believe it needs to be a full URL, http://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Donate would probably work. (I assume.)

> projects. Most Wikimedia projects don't use the English language. => WONTFIX.

As you can see from Cary's initial statement, he said the "default text", as in for non-English projects that do not have local sysops or a local translation yet.

> There is no reference to any community discussion => WONTFIX.

Cary Bass is an employee of the Wikimedia Foundation, the Volunteer Coordinator, (as illustrated by his @wikimedia.org e-mail address) and I believe he was requesting this to assist in the Fundation's annual fundraiser.  I do not think he needs a community discussion for this (I may be wrong, though).

Re: Wikimedia:Donate... then change it to the direct URL <http://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Donate>.  This can be done.  Please do it.
Comment 5 Cary Bass 2007-11-10 14:33:25 UTC
That would be MediaWiki:sitesupport-url.  
Comment 6 Tim Starling 2007-11-10 15:19:18 UTC
Done. The messages are now registered as extension messages, configured with wgSiteDefaultMessages in InitialiseSettings.php.
