Does the community agree to implement central categories and alerts for central modules?
This enhances the efficiency of the detection and the correction of errors, in some ways:
*Central modules need only translations to install them for a new language. This needs people and time to translate and adapt translations to all new modules and their changes.
*Alerts can call Lua-coders from main wikis to debug errors detected in small wikis.
*Categories guide the helpers for solutions.
*Small wikis are poor in admins to configure mediawiki and its extentions, then the risk of errors is highter in small wikis.
*Some modules versions need sub-modules in specific versions which only aware specialists can install.
*Some languages or sub-languages could need adaptations that only specialists can solve.
*All these problems can apear at install time, but also in long term on new use cases.
What can do central modules?
Central modules are able to detect internal errors which could block the display of a page, like in development phase, BUT ALSO LATER.
Central modules can detect internal errors like these:
The text ... lacks of translation in Hungarian.
Missing i18n translation for the argument "gender".
The missing Module:version ... is replaced by the normal Module:...
Abnormal calling arguments in date...
When errors happen in small wikis, they could disturb pages or even crash them replacing whole the page during long times.
Who would benefit
All simple readers of wikis. Also all Lua-coders to repair problems.
Central modules already detect errors and display them in errors messages and categories, see T135845 and the draft of fr.wikisource Central modules.
Create central categories and alerts for central modules.
Declare and activate categories and alerts each time a problem is detected by central modules.
For each problem, report datas: link to the involved page, error details...
Report in short in the category, with more datas in alerts, then with detailed datas in the page itself.
Report these in the local wiki and in the central repository T121470.
Report these in wiki, user and content languages.
These reports must enough suport Lua-coders to locate and repair the problem/s.
Where and when to use these categories and alerts?
For all pages with central modules, but perhaps also for mediawiki, extensions, bots...
Each time when we edit a module or a script or a template and then clic on "Show preview".
