As Mark Hershberger is busy preparing the MediaWiki 1.18 release,
Niklas and I spent time yesterday to prepare an i18n triage for
Wednesday.  The following bugs will be discussed.  I would specifically
call for any newbie developers to come to this triage because we have
selected a bunch of relatively easy issues you may be able to help
with to familiarize yourself with the MediaWiki localistion code and
submit a patch for.

Please forward this e-mail to anyone who may be interested.

The triage will have two sections.

== Message documentation and message related coding ==

take the same parameters

https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=28411 -- titles of articles
with LTR titles in RTL wikis may be displayed incorrectly in categories
and special pages

Discusion: Should we implement proper i18n support for named message
parameters? Niklas will introduce this topic.

gadget descriptions have incorrect directionality in RTL user languages

https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=30238 -- Create method to
get directionality of message including the fallback tree

Discussion: Our i18n system loses language information in the process.
Should this be resolved? Niklas will introduce this topic.

https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=28021 -- Migrate
translation projects at Meta to the Translate extension -- basically this
issue is about getting the extension reviewed before it can be installed.

extension for deployment on Wikimedia Wikis

I hope to see many of you  there!
