I'm a Bengaluru based Wikipedian. My home wiki is Kannada (kn). I also edit on en, meta, commons, kn:wikquote, kn:wikisource as well as translate wiki.

Apart from being on wiki, I have engaged myself in various FOSS activities for Kannada. My Kannada blog Linuxaayana is an unique blog under CC license spreading the FOSS knowledge since 2006. I'm also a locale leader for Mozilla Firefox, contributor for most of the l10n projects there.

I also drive the efforts around digitization of kannada literature. I have designed and built the architecture of Vachana Sanchaya platform with my team to help researchers to analyze the language development and literature of Vachana Sahitya from 10th to 12th century.

There are many more such efforts I would like to highlight and share with other FOSS community members. Do drop a word via omshivaprakash at gmail dot com

Enabling would be great as we have community members to start working on both.

Omshivaprakash updated subscribers of T21412: #time parser function can't read local language month names.

(In reply to comment #24)

We have the same problem in KN:WP.

In many of the calendar templates which we imported from EN:WP, there are
expressions like this:

{{#ifexpr:{{#time:t|{{{year|2000}}}-{{{month|jan}}}}}>28|29}}

which promptly gets expanded to

{{#ifexpr:31>28|29}}

which promptly returns 29.

However, the same expression in KN:WP will result in this:

{{#ifexpr:{{#time:t|{{{year|2000}}}-{{{month|jan}}}}}>28|29}}

{{#ifexpr:೩೧>28|29}}

which will throw an error:
Expression error: Unrecognized punctuation character "�"

Is there any workaround/solution for this?

Your issue is not directly related to this one, but I can see it. You need to convert the digits to arabic glyphs.

As long as {{#time}} supplies you with Kannada digits, you need to use {{format:KANNADA_INTEGER|R}} (note "R" argument). For example, you can use this to fix the issue:

{{#ifexpr:{{formatnum:{{#time:t|{{{year|2000}}}-{{{month|jan}}}}}|R}}>28|29}}

Try it and report back if it works.

Removing text from https://kn.wikipedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Recentchangestext resolved the issue. Might be something related to old MediaWiki setting.
