bzimport set Reference to bz40238.
bzimport added a subscriber: Unknown Object (MLST).

Reverting the above change (revert is I19fe52d0) because the proposed solution causes us to run out of memory.

Constructing a Language object for each language loads all the messages for every language and causes an out of memory error on pages with a non-trivial number of sitelinks. Each language seems to require about 500KB of memory.

We need a lightweight way to get the names and directionality of all languages, without loading all the messages. Lazy initialization of the Language object could help. Of there could be a LanguageInfo interface for stuff like name and directionality.

There should also be an hreflang attribute on links to other-langugae wikis.

The fix merged is only partial so the bug isn't fixed.

Removing patch-in-gerrit keyword as the partial patch was merged.

This seems fixed now. Please reopen with specific description of what is still broken if not.
