Related to: T270543: User contributions page title italian translation bug.
Would it be possible to do a couple of backports to fix the title display in Special:Contributions across WMF wikis? I know we're in the code-freeze weeks and that's why I am asking. The commits would be:
After rMW7fff9280afee: Merge "Avoid reuse of message contributions for linking" got merged the title in Special:Contributions no longer uses tool-link-contributions but contributions. This has caused that User contributions in said Special:Contributions page appear untranslated at all wikis now which is causing confusion (see eswiki VP thread for example).
While localisation updates have happened, they've not been branched/deployed and therefore we're having an untranslated string in a very high-traffic page and in a prominent location.
To fix this we're creating local MediaWiki messages, which we'll need to have them deleted later. Double work.
Inconvenience of doing these backports are mostly that given that they're localisation updates a full scap and full localisation cache update is needed, which takes quite some time. But on the other hand given that the Deployments schedule is empty, it shouldn't conflict with other works. They are not PHP or other "dangerous" code, just translations updates which should be "safe" enough to do.
Considering that we're in the code-freeze weeks I am filing this task to ask Release-Engineering-Team to determine whether they'd be willing to do those two backports to fix this.
In any case, thanks for your attention to this matter.
