Description Rémi Kaupp 2007-03-05 22:22:02 UTC
It could be useful to have a --plural parameter added to
/maintenance/language/checkLanguage.php, in order to detect messages which use
the {{PLURAL:$1}} function in English but not in the tested language (and maybe
should), on the same principle of the "variables" parameter for the same script.

As more and more messages use {{PLURAL}}, this test could be a way to know how a
message could be improved.
Comment 1 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2007-03-06 02:12:45 UTC
A number of languages, such as Chinese, don't use plurals in general, and so
would tend to fail this without reason.
Comment 2 Rémi Kaupp 2007-03-06 06:30:10 UTC
True. Maybe this check could be optional, then ?
Comment 3 Rotem Liss 2007-03-06 14:04:46 UTC
Added in r20167 as an optional check, like "duplicate".
