Description Guttorm Flatabø 2004-10-18 12:19:29 UTC
Currently system messages used in extensions such as "Boardvote" and
"SiteMatrix" are only editable in the  MediaWiki namespace. Therefore new
installations cannot will have to do their own translation.

If you could include the messages in LanguageXx.php and translate them there,
new installs could also use the translations. Alternatively the translation
could be put in its own file for every extension or just one file for all
extensions (ExtensionsLanguageXx.php or ExtensionXLanguageXx.php).
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2005-06-22 06:14:49 UTC
The extension can add its localizations to the message cache at runtime.
