On the monthly Betawiki info

In February there have been contributions to Betawiki for 156 languages. Again, this is REALLY good news when you look where we are coming from. The quality of the MediaWiki localisation has improved a lot. Ten more languages support the most relevant messages, four the core messages, seven more support the extensions used by the WMF and 2 more languages support more then 65% of all the extension messages.

I am happy to agree that there is still a long way ahead of us. One big milestone we want to reach is when two hundred languages have posted localisations in one month. This would not make things perfect, it would make things better.

What is important to realise that there is nothing static in the numbers; MediaWiki development is a continuous process, new messages make their appearance, messages change. It takes continuous effort to maintain the quality of MediaWiki.
