No, it doesn't work like that.

You can remeber to git clone --recursive.

I'd suggest updating user-facing docs instead. Or perhaps making your script entry point(s) check for i18n and then bail if it doesn't exist.

I will update docs on mediawiki.

Docs on mediawiki contain --recursive. See https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Pywikibot/Gerrit. But the plugin seems essential to me.

I'd rather not install a plugin with the associated maintenance costs for a single repository.

Can we with Gerrit 3.2 somehow add some project description, where we could mention this? The same with Phabricator rPWBC project?

Or just navigate visitors to the MW.org docs from there
