Hi @Tinss, thanks for taking the time to report this!

This comes from the mainpagedocfooter string in includes/installer/i18n/en.json which can be updated by anyone on (after creating an account on ).

Hope you're doing well.
I can push a quick patch to fix this if needed. It appears to have not been fixed yet. Should I push one or let someone do it on translatewiki?

en.json must be updated in Git, and cannot be changed on translatewiki.

Thanks for the note. I'll get to it then!
