use the wiki's content language when inserting this comment (1.31 KB, patch)

Description Rowan Collins [IMSoP] 2005-01-14 01:59:33 UTC
When a user moves a page, the message inserted into the edit history is in their
chosen interface language. Anybody who doesn't speak that language will simply
be baffled by what they see in watchlists, history pages, etc.

The ideal situation would be if the message could be magically translated
depending on who was *viewing* the history entry (i.e. it would behave as part
of the interface, not just an immutable comment in the history). But this may be
a bit far-fetched, so the simpler solution is just to use the content language
selected for the entire wiki, which will presumably have been chosen as
appropriate for the majority of users.
