Complete namespaceGenderAliases for all languages we support
Closed, DeclinedPublic


We support namespaces aliases depending on the user gender. This is perfect for the USER and USER_TALK namespaces. As of february 2011, we add aliases languages per language (ex: r82719).

This bug is requesting to set up the aliases for ALL languages we support for MediaWiki 1.18 release.

Version: 1.18.x
Severity: minor

Hey, I had hoped to introduce namespace gender support on International Women's Day ;) but I'm afraid there are too many issues...

In last comments of Bug17160 I presented my objections and then I opened new bugs:

  • Bug27387
  • Bug27398 (really important)

I think this is kindof an inexplicit issue that is unsolvable. We do not know
which language we support do and do not need this setting. Suggestion made in
comment 1 is useful, but I do not think keeping this issue open is.

We could grep usage of {{GENDER}} in translations and ask only from those languages.

adding as blocker for bug #28052 even though it is closed so that people will be aware of it and (maybe?) look for solutions.

Mark, you want to reopen the bug since we do not really look at RESOLVED or CLOSED bugs :b

Closing this again as WFM. Anyone can just submit whatever gender patch may need to be made for a locale.
