Description Pavel Selitskas [wizardist] 2013-02-07 13:59:01 UTC
Since Language uses proper language codes in favour of dummy codes (simple -> en), message system goes wrong:

1. MediaWiki root pages are treated as 'simple' (wgLanguageCode)
2. Message system gets 'en' instead of 'simple'
3. Using MediaWiki:xyz/en

Reason: Bug 44550, Bug 44493, and other wikis, having a dummy language in wgLanguageCode. Although, that is also a configuration issue, but it seems kind of ill.

Perhaps we can document this as "don't do this".

"Don't set a dummy code"? If you see this as an acceptable solution (I do), then OK.

Scope of wgLanguageCode now is limited in documentation, stable work with dummy codes not guaranteed.
