Templates were fixed today, we are waiting for v2.0beta10.

Upping the priority because this is a commonly introduced bug with thousands of cases across all languages that may or may not have local bots that can fix it, like with @Bencemac on huwiki and my bot on enwiki. Recommend IABot include code to fix it when it sees it. It's a simple fix but should also account for unusual spacing around the left and right of the "=" sign eg. title = {title}

I bumped into this one today (see reference edit).

@Cyberpower678 A gentle reminder. Could you give us a little update?
