Special:AllMessages should not show DummyLanguageCodes
Open, LowPublic

Description

Special:AllMessages shows an option list for the language. This list contains duplicate entries:

als - Alemannischgsw - Alemannisch
bat-smg - žemaitėškasgs - žemaitėška
be-x-old - беларуская (тарашкевіца)‎be-tarask - беларуская (тарашкевіца)‎
......

The language codes of the duplicate entries get mapped by $wgDummyLanguageCodes in DefaultSettings.php.
I suggest to filtered out these codes from the option list.

This task has been assigned to the same task owner for more than two years. Resetting task assignee due to inactivity, to decrease task cookie-licking and to get a slightly more realistic overview of plans. Please feel free to assign this task to yourself again if you still realistically work or plan to work on this task - it would be welcome!
