Need to look into how other extensions use the standard copyright notice and override with the WMF-specific one.
Comment 1 Kunal Mehta (Legoktm) 2013-10-04 17:21:24 UTC
Looking at, we just need to do something like:

$title = Title::newFromText('Special:MassMessage');
$msg = array( 'copyrightwarning' );
wfRunHooks( 'EditPageCopyrightWarning', array( $title, &$msg ) );
Comment 2 Bartosz Dziewoński 2013-10-04 19:59:10 UTC
The relevant function is EditPage::getCopyrightWarning(), the messages
shouldn't be used directly.
