Highly anal patch ;-) (802 bytes, patch)

Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-12-21 14:19:25 UTC

screen dump will follow

Please take a look at the url from above.
Please use the "← Previous diff" and "Next diff →" links or use
in order to make more diff's.

"MediaWiki default" should not generate revisions with identical content compared to the 
existing messages in the MediaWiki namespace.

This would help to save time to focus on the "real" changes when analysing updates on the own 
wiki or "reference" wiki's.

Because in the example no difference (text at left and right in different colors) is shown the 
example from above is no testcase for
bug 3894: space, white space characters, BiDi control characters, diacritical marks should 
show up in diff 

Not shure if I have chosen the right product and component.
- I assume that this is neither specific to "WikiMedia web sites" nor to "History/Diff".
- I assumed that component "Installation" covers also "Upgrading".

best regards reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]

What action caused "MediaWiki default" to make the changes in the first place?

Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2005-12-21 23:05:57 UTC
monobook.js has an extra newline on the end in Language.php, which causes it to not match.

Highly anal patch ;-)

Possibly the most ridiculous patch I've ever submitted, but here it is.

A couple dozen files need updating for bug 4108, I'm on that already.

Good. I did worry about the sheer anality of that patch. ;-)

With fixed language files, the dupe entries are no longer created.
