Description zyxoas 2006-07-15 16:28:28 UTC
When specifying different language versions of 
Wikipedia pages, a list of the native names of the 
other languages the page is available in is 
displayed on the LHS (usually) of the page. When 
one links to the Sesotho (st) language version of 
a page (see [[:en:User:Zyxoas]] for an example) 
the native language name is incorrectly displayed 
as "seSotho" instead of the correct "Sesotho". 
[[Sesotho]] is not an [[Nguni]] language and does 
not use caMeL CapItAls distinguishing the class 
prefixes for proper names (unlike isiZulu, 
isiXhosa, etc).

Fixed with r27488.
Comment 2 zyxoas 2007-11-14 19:38:42 UTC
I don't quite understand.

Does this mean that the name has been changed to "Sesotho" in the latest software release and will apear on Wikipedia soon? If that's the case (since it still hasn't changed on Wikipedia), then that's perfect. Thank you.
Comment 3 Raimond Spekking 2007-11-14 19:42:30 UTC
Yes, in a few days, after the next software sync on Wikimedia servers, [[st:]] will appear as "Sesotho". Have a look at [[st:Special:Version]]:

"MediaWiki: 1.12alpha (r26409)" is it today. When the number is >= r27488 it's live :)
