Description Brian Jason Drake 2005-12-06 03:52:53 UTC
http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:Cite?page=MediaWiki

"Bibliographic details for MediaWiki
...
Publisher: MediaWiki, The Free Encyclopedia.
..."

Huh? MediaWiki isn't an encyclopedia!
Comment 1 ABCD 2005-12-06 03:54:40 UTC
The text just needs to be changed in a MediaWiki: namespace page (I forgot which
one)
Comment 2 Brian Jason Drake 2005-12-06 03:59:05 UTC
Is this connected to any other bugs? How did the text get onto mediawiki.org in the first 
place?
Comment 3 Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason 2005-12-06 04:30:49 UTC
This is just a case of MediaWiki:sitesubtitle needing to be changed, the tool
has been de-installed on that wiki now. Feel free to file a new bug on the issue
that sitesubtitle doesn't make sense in the default distribution if there isn't
one already.

Resolving as INVALID since it's something that can be changed through the
MediaWiki namespace.

"Wikimedia web sites:   Configuration and other issues specific to Wikipedia, Wiktionary, 
Commons, and other Wikimedia projects, this includes issues with MediaZilla (this bugtracker)." 
(http://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/enter_bug.cgi)

This bug is an issue specific to a Wikimedia project (www.mediawiki.org) and is therefore valid 
when filed under the product "Wikimedia web sites".
Comment 5 Brian Jason Drake 2005-12-06 05:25:43 UTC
If it's just a case of changing MediaWiki:Sitesubtitle, why uninstall the tool?
Comment 6 Brian Jason Drake 2005-12-06 05:26:46 UTC
"Feel free to file a new bug on the issue that sitesubtitle doesn't make sense in the default 
distribution if there isn't one already."

I don't understand.

Because it isn't appropriate at mediawiki.org IMO regardless of what
sitesubtitle says.
Comment 8 Brian Jason Drake 2005-12-06 05:31:48 UTC
Why isn't it appropriate at mediawiki.org?

It is not, it happened because the sitesubtitle message in the default MediaWiki
distribution is specific to Wikipedia, but shouldn't be.

That comment means to file a bug stating that the default subtitle doesn't make sense, if there 
isn't already such a bug (that comment is confusing).

See bug 4191.
Comment 12 Rob Church 2005-12-06 12:06:03 UTC
An administrator on MediaWiki.org simply needs to change the aforementioned
MediaWiki namespace page, if that hasn't been done. It's not something that
requires developer intervention, and therefore, this bug report is invalid.
