We already got:

	"group-abusefilter-helper": "Abuse filter helpers",
	"group-abusefilter-helper-member": "{{GENDER:$1|abuse filter helper}}",
	"grouppage-abusefilter-helper": "m:Abuse filter helpers",

because there's a global abusefilter-helper group. I think this is fine, but enwiki might want to customize MediaWiki:Grouppage-Abusefilter-helper in order for the group page to point to Wikipedia:Edit filter helpers instead that of Meta-Wiki. Does it sound good?

I'm not sure if the message should be the traditional abusefilter-helper or changed to the more modern editfilter-helper.

@DatGuy I'd stick with abusefilter-.* as it's the internal and standard naming being used in all config changes, and even enwiki abusefilter group is called as such. It also helps greping configuration, helping developers find things. Of course you can customise the messages locally by editing the relevant MediaWiki messages.

In order to preserve the messages from the global group, I'm thinking on creating editfilter-helper-.* or af-helper-.* messages so they don't conflict each other. What do you think @Nemo_bis @Raymond ?

I think I'm going to leave things as they're now and move on creating the group right away; enwiki will customize the local messages nonetheless as they call the whole AbuseFilter extension "edit filter" so we won't have much issues here. If the group gets "popular" then we can think about modifying/adding new messages to differentiate between the two of them.
