What is the result of GENDER in case of plurality ?

The following message:

 
{{PLURAL:$1|L’{{GENDER:$2|utilisateur|utilisatrice}} a|$1 utilisateurs ont}} été {{PLURAL:$1|supprimé|supprimés}}.

is NOK because 'supprimé' must be declined according to gender (at least) and number (at best).

Then what is the resulting GENDER in the 3 cases of plurality: several males, females, or mixed society ?

The GENDER magic word is only available for individual users. Is it possible in French to write a gender neutral translation in plural? In Italian we would write "soppressi/e".

Not a fix for the feminine plural, but the first issue in this post ("L'utilisatrice a été supprimé. (one female person) -> missing 'e'") is solved like this:

{{PLURAL:$1|L’{{GENDER:$2|utilisateur|utilisatrice}} a|$1 utilisateurs ont}} été {{PLURAL:$1|{{GENDER:$2|supprimé|supprimée}}|supprimés}}.

Yes, but this post concerns plural.

Yup, I know, I just wanted to point out that it's really just one of those cases that is problematic, and not two as you said in the post. :-)

This data is available in Unicode CLDR as far as I know: https://github.com/unicode-cldr/cldr-core/blob/master/supplemental/gender.json

I think it would be relatively simple to implement it in MediaWiki. Would someone like to file a task in Phabricator and CC me?
