An update on localisation in MediaWiki (2009)

On 31 December 2007 and 1 January 2008 I sent an e-mail to which this is a 
follow up[1,2].

First things first, because not everyone reads e-mails completely:
* MediaWiki localisation (that is the translation of English source messages 
to other languages) depends on you! If you speak a language other than 
English, care about your language in MediaWiki and Wikimedia and like 
translating, go to http://translatewiki.net, register a user and start 
contributing translations for MediaWiki and MediaWiki extensions. When your 
localisation is complete, keep coming back regularly to re-complete it and do 
quality control. Thank you in advance for all your contributions and effort.
* The i18n and L10n area of MediaWiki requires continuous efforts. If this 
area of FOSS has your interest: we need your help. Please offer your 
development skills to further MediaWiki's i18n, L10n and translation 
capabilities[3,4].

All statistics are based on MediaWiki 1.16 alpha, SVN version r60527 (31 
December 2009). Comparisons are to MediaWiki 1.14 alpha, SVN version r45277
(1 January 2009).

I had a look at the code one or two years ago, and started a
small DWIM-and-nothing-more extension "Mapsources" along the
lines of "Booksources" that "called" a template with the co-
ordinates as parameters so that you could use all of Media-
Wiki's parser functions & Co. in it. The idea would have
been to extend it eventually to have the list of map sources
ordered by the region of the individual coordinate and by
user preference (Swiss coordinates: Swisstopo, British coor-

jQuery and extensions

I remember it was mentioned that jQuery is going to be bundled with
MediaWiki soon (1.16?).

I wonder what would be the best approach for extensions that use jQuery and
package it up within itself to use global jQuery and do that in backwards
compatible way (e.g. to make sure that prior versions of MediaWiki don't get
broken).

Is there a good How-To for developers to rewrite their extensions?

Thank you,

        Sergey

Re: jQuery and extensions

Just a little roadmap info: mwEmbed[1], contaning jQuery, will not be part of 
MediaWiki 1.16. It will be added in a later version. Tim Starling pulled it 
from trunk a few weeks ago and Michael Dale has continued working on it in a 
branch.

I expect it will be added again after the branching/tagging of 1.16, and be 
part of 1.17 after a thorough shake down during the 1.17 alpha period.

Re: jQuery and extensions

Thanks, Siebrand. It gives us a bit more time to write such documentation.

Re: Bugzilla Weekly Report

I've been trying to understand this report for a while, especially the section 
"New Bugs Per Product" compared to "Bugs NEW".

This week we apparently had 283 NEW bugs, and 34 bugs reported on the top 5 
products.

Given that we only have 13 products defined in bugzilla, of which 10 are 
active for bug submits, I fear something is wrong in the report.

Can someone please clarify?

Siebrand
