Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-06-12 13:06:39 UTC
comment regarding
[[Help:Template#Version 1.2.6]]
In versions 1.3 and 1.4 the prefix "msg:" is optional and ignored.
*From version 1.5 the tag {{msg:abc}} refers to Template:Msg:abc !*

Dear friends!

I have seen at various wiki's that
a) many pages still contain {{msg:foo}}
b) there are still many redirects from templates located originaly in the
MediaWiki namespace to their equivalent in the template namespace.

a) could be changed with a [[en:Wikipedia:Bot]]
b) are the result of actions performed by
   [[User:Template namespace initialisation script]]
   and can be identified with
   [[Special:Contributions/Template namespace initialisation script]]

Best regards Reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]

For reasons that are unclear to me, Avar made an incompatible change to what
msg: did on the 1.5 branch. I've reverted the change; it now continues to be
compatible with previous usage.
