Description とある白い猫 2007-12-14 22:07:28 UTC

The article talks about "The RAAF will replace its F-111s with 24 F/A-18F Super Hornets in 2010."

Talks about things that 'are going to happen'

I can list many more examples. It is problematic to maintain such issues that 'will happen'. Eventually they do happen and article still talks in the future tense.

A function that checks current date with the passed date and uses the appropriate tense

Something like 

value1=future tense
value2=present tense
value3=past tense
value4=date of event

This may be done via a template perhaps but mediawiki support for it would be the better approach on the long run.

You can do this with parser functions. I'd prefer to keep the text clean and well-written, though.
Comment 2 とある白い猫 2007-12-20 17:49:48 UTC
I know that but the overuse of parser functions is a problem. That is why I seek an alternative method.
