Improve ping limiter error message
Open, In Progress, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Ping limiter error messages (actionthrottledtext) say to wait a few minutes, but we use the ping limiter to throttle daily rates for some things. The message should tell you how much you need to wait.

@BhargavInturi: Hi and welcome! How is it going? Do you need any help with anything for this task?

I'm making sure anything tagged with mediawiki-interface also has a more specific tag. Is this one appropriate?

I suppose you could argue that throttling is a kind of authorization. I don't think we have any component that would be a closer match, at least.
