Just wondering, why do you need to rename it at all? You could call it "aoushndaousnh" and it wouldn't matter, normal users will only ever see the name you use for it in MediaWiki:Gadget-DeluxeHistory. That can be changed without renaming the gadget messages.

jhsoby added a comment to T186445: TranslationNotifications: code stewardship review.

In addition to looking into MassMessage integration, I think it would also be worth looking into integrating it with Notifications (Echo). That was actually something I wanted when the extension was made, the problem was just that Echo didn't exist yet. :-) Right now I think the threshold for sending out a notification is very high since it's posted to many user talk pages, but being able to send out notifications via Echo should lower that threshold significantly I think.

@MarcoAurelio, when we did that (rename namespace) for the Walloon Wiktionary all we needed to do was change config and then run namespaceDupes. However, since cawikimedia doesn't have any pages in the "Project" namespace or any pages in the main namespace with the prefix "Wikimedia:", I'm not even sure you'd have to run that script. Should still do it just to be safe though.

@Trizek-WMF Something like this for Tech News?

When you import a page from another wiki the usernames of the users who edited the article on the wiki you imported it from are shown in the article history. This should link to the users on the original wiki. A script to fix this caused problems for Wikidata and German Wikipedia. It also created a large number of [[<tvar|sul>m:Special:MyLanguage/Help:Unified login|SUL accounts]] on wikis where editors had never edited.

jhsoby added a comment to T182292: Moved paragraphs in diff use a tag with name, which is obsolete in HTML5.

As far as I can tell, the divs in diffs (at least in normal diffs, don't know about moved paragraphs) don't have an ID, so it might be tidier to append the ID to that one instead of creating a new span?

jhsoby claimed T181782: Change project namespace name on Walloon Wiktionary to "Wiccionaire".

Added patch, but I'm not 100 % sure what will happen with the existing pages using the "Wiccionaire:" prefix. I think they will just be considered as part of the project namespace, but someone should probably confirm that.

@Charlie_WMDE Sure, all you would need to do to test it is to change one of the messages locally on a wiki that has the extension. Embarassingly though, I haven't been able to find where they're actually used (which special page?), if not I could test it myself easily enough.

The wikitext produces exactly the same code as the HTML, so any differences in the output of the wikitext would also be present with HTML.

jhsoby updated subscribers of T181326: Advanced Search help messages should use wiki syntax instead of HTML.

I could make the actual change in the messsages myself, but I know from experience that in some cases, messages don't accept wikitext. But when I think about it, these messages do use wikitext format for the links, so wikitext has to be fine for the rest too. What do you think, @Lea_WMDE, should I make and commit the change?
