The purpose of the rally is to improve the usability and the usability is served best when messages are localised in this order:
- the most often used messages
- MediaWiki core messages
- messages of extensions used by the Wikimedia Foundation
- other MediaWiki extensions
There is only one real winner, that is the language community the localisations were done for. Like all the other localisations they became available in all MediaWiki projects that use LocalisationUpdate.
