If I change my default system language from English to anything else, I get
these 2 results (ignore my crazy pink background ;)
So, yes, in the future we should make sure to send the link to this list
without the empty "&language=" parameter.

I don't think it's easy to obtain the broken link. (I assume Johan just
manually deleted the "en" from the URL? Whenever I send the message I just
copy the previous weeks link and change the numbers.) But just in case,
I've filed https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T135855
Thanks, and have a good weekend. :-)
