Description Srikanth Logic 2012-08-22 12:21:51 UTC
Some languages(localizers) require this message to support {{GENDER}}. See also bug 39052
Comment 1 Mark Holmquist 2012-08-22 16:26:59 UTC
Note: This bug may *manifest* in UploadWizard, but it's not a bug in the UW code. It's a bug in the mw.Message code. The mw.Message class needs to support the {{GENDER}} keyword in all its various forms, else there will be i18n issues wherever an extension tries to use that keyword in JavaScript. UW can't be the first, and it certainly won't be the last.
Comment 2 Amir E. Aharoni 2012-10-26 19:58:04 UTC
It does work there, but a bit differently - instead of the name it gets a user object. See

Despite being in the Language Engineering team, it's the first time I actually used GENDER in JavaScript, so I may have done something wrong, too :)
