"a list of files" -> "files in a list", because a file list itself cannot be protected

The bot is protecting or deleting a couple of files given by a list but it is not doing this in the list itself.

Message text does not make sense to me.

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)18:20, 6 January 2014

en and qqq updated to a more sensible translation.

Valhallasw (talk)12:00, 21 February 2014

Thank you. The qqq is clear now. I think that "referring from" in the message should be "referring to". My dictionary does not know "refer from".

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)17:10, 2 September 2015

Is this still waiting for action?

scripts/i18n submodule bump to master

Hello. I've been recently translating messages to aragonese, yet after some months the messages ain't avalaible at the submodule (currently: 8e949fce7f77cc97f682780010c0bcc2e2de8f14 scripts/i18n (8e949fc). Would it be possible to have it updated? Thanks.

MarcoAurelio (talk)15:22, 22 July 2016

I've managed to get the i18n files updated via git submodule foreach git pull origin master; but anyone cloning pywikibot from gerrit won't get the messages updated. Thanks.

MarcoAurelio (talk)15:41, 22 July 2016

It's updated now.

MarcoAurelio (talk)09:42, 31 July 2016

Please delete the message as it's equal to the source. Thanks.

What is the "states redirect"?

revi^09:42, 20 September 2015

What is a state abbreviation redirect?

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)15:24, 20 September 2015

The period should be removed. This is an edit summary.

Siebrand17:47, 17 May 2015

What is meant - "referred to from" or "referring to" ?

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)16:44, 19 June 2015

Referring to (i.e. Special:WhatLinksHere)

What is an EDP image?

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)07:56, 27 June 2015

It stands for Exemption Doctrine Policy, see

Xqt (talk)10:54, 27 June 2015

Should have date/time sparated.

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)05:28, 17 May 2015

Please stop re-creating the same issue over and over again. You have received a response already, and you are subscribed to the relevant Phabricator task (phab:T102174).

PLURAL support for some Pywikibot messages

Macofe (talk)22:44, 12 February 2015

Upstreamed as phab:T89678.

Valhallasw (talk)22:21, 16 February 2015

already done

Xqt (talk)10:03, 2 July 2015

You can update the summary to close the thread. I did now.

Needs date and time parametes separated. See: Separate times from dates in sentences.

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)08:47, 25 February 2014

As far as I can see, %(timestamp)s is date/time in ISO format ('2006-01-26T12:05:04Z'), so this should not really be an issue. As long as we don't do proper date formatting, I don't think it makes sense to adapt the messages to allow that.

Valhallasw (talk)22:32, 25 April 2014

Well, ISO dates are completely unsuited for translated messages. What to do?

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)14:42, 16 February 2015

Feel free to open a feature request on phab to improve date formatting in revertbot, but it's unlikely to be implemented soon. Doing date formatting *correctly* means we actually have to implement a way to format localized dates and times, which (as far as I know) we currently don't have.

I'm not sure though why you feel ISO dates 'are completely unsuited'. The goal of the message is to transmit four bits of information ('we reverted', revision X, which was created by Y at date/time Z) and, even if the translated message is imperfect, this message can be transmitted.

Valhallasw (talk)14:54, 16 February 2015

ISO dates are understandable for people with an anglosaxon background - be it learned or grown up in. For most other cultures they are either completely unreadable or at least misleading. So that is not a little imperfection that we are talking about here, they are unsuited for i18n.

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)20:28, 11 June 2015

Realistically, there is no way to implement this in pywikibot at the moment. Either we implement it ourselves (not realistic), or we hook into ICU (which is possible, has issues for windows users). I created phab:T102174 to track this; please continue the discussion there.

Valhallasw (talk)20:36, 11 June 2015

The timestamps is unsuited for i18n. Date and time need to be separated as of mw:Localisation#Separate times from dates in sentences.

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)13:42, 23 September 2014

As I answered before in Thread:Support/About_Pywikibot:Revertbot-revert/ksh:

"As far as I can see, %(timestamp)s is date/time in ISO format ('2006-01-26T12:05:04Z'), so this should not really be an issue. As long as we don't do proper date formatting, I don't think it makes sense to adapt the messages to allow that."

Valhallasw (talk)10:32, 13 November 2014

Won't fix as long as this is a timestamp only.

Xqt (talk)10:52, 28 December 2014

Timestamps are completely unsuited for translated messages.

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)15:13, 18 February 2015

Needs time and date separated.

invalidation needed to some pywikibot messages

This change needs us to update or invalidate messages like Pywikibot:Archivebot-older-than/zh. I already updated Pywikibot:Archivebot-older-than/ja. Can someone add "FUZZY" to those not updated?

whym21:09, 18 August 2014

To keep things working as they used to do, it might be better to append unupdated messaged with " %(duration)s", export, and then invalidate. (Nemo bis's suggestion)

whym09:05, 12 September 2014

What's selflinks? Links like [[Page]] on Page? --Basetalkcontributions 18:16, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

This message can be optional.

Beta16 (talk)09:06, 30 December 2013

Wording of both the messages and the messae documentation is ambigous. Is there one commons or commoscat template per wiki, or can wikis have several different ones each?

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)08:41, 25 February 2014

I've updated the message documentation.
