[[MediaWiki:Savedrights]] i18n issue
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

URL: https://translatewiki.net/wiki/MediaWiki:Savedrights/en

This message refers to userrights being saved. Actually user groups are being saved. So the message should say for consistency "The user groups of {{GENDER:$1|$1}} have been saved." Messages like "userrights-lookup-user", "userrights-changeable-col" and "userrights-editusergroup" on the very same special page already refer to user groups.

I am aware that this message dates back to the dark ages of MediaWiki so the name of the special page and the name of the log should probably not be touched.

Changed 'rights' to 'groups' in the above patch both in 'en' and 'qqq'. Let me know if there's something else missing, such as API+* messages needing change as well.

@MarcoAurelio Thanks for agreeing and fixing. As for the API I am afraid that I cannot tell if it is affected too.

@Kghbln Thanks should be to @Nikerabbit who approved the patch. I'll have a look at the API messages when I've got some time and see if there's anything to change. Regards.

@MarcoAurelio Well you did the typing. :) @Nikerabbit has a subscription on thankyous from me even if not explicitly mentioned. :)
