Please change the tab text for the Main Page from Page to Main Page please. I know that you can do it manually but it should be done anyways.

Just create [[MediaWiki:Mainpage-nstab]]

Do you want a default translation for the optional message and make it non-optional?

Well I think the tab should be for main page by default it should say Main Page and allow people to opt out by doing what you suggested.

We could mark it with translatewiki [{{Identical|Main page}}]( as well. I'd recommend against making it default to {{int:mainpage}} since some wikis have a namespaced and/or camel-cased title there that isn't a good label (e.g. Special:MainPage or Project:Main_Page).

Message {{int:mainpage-description}} (as used in the sidebar) would be more appropriate in that case. This way wikis that override it with a different page will still have the correct (and localised) label.

I agree it makes sense to do this by default instead of requiring wikis to do it manually.

Ok yes. Where should I change and which message do I change.
