#MediaWiki #Localisation update process runs now with #GIT

Tthe #Wikimedia Foundation embarked on the migration from SVN to GIT and it proved quite an adventure. It was unclear how changes in the MediaWiki software and its extensions would end up in translatewiki.net . It was unclear how changes in the localisation would end up in GIT and from there on the production wikis.

We are now happy to report that the pipeline from new and changed messages in the MediaWiki software and its extensions resulting in new and changed localisations in all the WMF projects is working again. The messages that have been localised are now automatically moved into GIT and from there the LocalisationUpdate process makes them available in all the WMF wikis.

When you had the LocalisationUpdate process running on your wiki, it is likely that you need to update the software to reflect the change from SVN to GIT. When the latest version of LocalisationUpdate does not work for you, please create a bug in Bugzilla and ask for support.
Thanks,
