Description Dan Jacobson 2007-01-25 19:15:10 UTC
Upon upgrade to 1.9.0, the user's customized Mediawiki:Privacy,
Mediawiki:Sidebar, etc. are overwritten.

He doesn't find out unless he inspects the screen edges minutely.

Again appears the "Donations" link, like I was out of cash or
something. Ha ha ha.

Again appears the "Privacy policy" link, like it was their business.
Ha ha ha.

(I didn't exactly upgrade. I installed 1.9.0 from scratch, but told
the configure form my existing database.)

Custom message pages are not overwritten.

*New* messages pages may be added.

Customized *language files* are of course overwritten when you replaced them.
Comment 2 Dan Jacobson 2007-02-01 19:39:44 UTC
Here's how my Mediawiki:Privacy (and Mediawiki:Sidebar) were
overwritten upon upgrade from 1.7.1 to 1.9.0:

< var wgArticleId = "2931";
> var wgArticleId = 0;
< var wgCurRevisionId = "3364";
> var wgCurRevisionId = false;

P.S., $wgLanguageCode = "zh-tw";
