[TUX] Special:Translate should give warning on exit when changes have not been applied yet
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Example way to reproduce (but may also be one of the problems under bug 46716):

  1. Open Special:LanguageStats
  2. Select a page with many outdated messages and go to "Outdated"
  3. Confirm all messages till the end of the page

Now Special:Translate will slowly apply your changes and switch the icons from "Outdated" to "Translated" (in no particular order). If you exit the page too soon, your changes are lost.

Expected: user is given "You have unsaved changes" or similar before abandoning the page if some updates are still in progress.

Maybe this should be generalised to "Special:Translate should complete the 'Saving...'". We have a report from a translator consistently unable to save translations. https://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Meta_talk:Babylon&diff=5411601&oldid=5408668

We already have warning for saving translations, not sure about proofreading.

Who files it then? I've no idea how to describe it.

Unless it was introduced since the 12th, we don't.

That's bug 45555.
