with bug 6332 a new variable was introduced, mainpage-description. unfortunately, this is inconsistent with other variables (portal, portal-url, etc.). I suggest correcting this to mainpage as description and mainpage-url as qualified page name.
In order to do this in every Messages*.php a line 'mainpage-url' => $mainpage, has to be added
Moreover, in Title::newMainPage:
- $title = Title::newFromText( wfMsgForContent( 'mainpage' ) );
+ $title = Title::newFromText( wfMsgForContent( 'mainpage-url' ) );
Too much work and would break too many things for only small benefit in naming consistency. I say wontfix.
The naming was chosen to avoid disrupting sites which had customized the main page name.
