Description Bartosz Dziewoński 2013-10-19 12:33:53 UTC
Language#formatExpiry needs database connection (to get the value of infinity string – `$infinity = wfGetDB( DB_SLAVE )->getInfinity();`). It should not.

After this is fixed, the FIXME added in should be removed.
Comment 1 Siebrand Mazeland 2013-10-19 15:15:09 UTC
Why is this classified as an i18n issue? AFAICT getInfinity() was implemented in the Database class for some reason.

includes/db/Database.php, Class Database, ~line 3800:

 * Find out when 'infinity' is. Most DBMSes support this. This is a special
 * keyword for timestamps in PostgreSQL, and works with CHAR(14) as well
 * because "i" sorts after all numbers.
 * @return String
public function getInfinity() {
	return 'infinity';
Comment 2 Bartosz Dziewoński 2013-10-19 15:17:00 UTC
Feel free to change the component if you think it's incorrect, I18n felt appropriate as this is an issue with (among others) the Language class.
