Red links[edit]

The "tests", "results", "sandbox", and "tests passed" links are red links. Why does this module claim to work, and why do templates using this module copied from commons to meta fail with a script error "autolang not found"? –Be..anyone (talk) 20:03, 26 December 2014 (UTC)

They are red links because no one created them, yet and if I would have done so, I would have to rewrite them all the time something in MediaWiki's Scribunto implementation changes. {{Autolang}} might be missing on Meta. -- Rillke(q?) 01:02, 27 December 2014 (UTC)
A bot should keep essential modules with the same name on c:, m:, and mw: in sync, including anything they rely on. Without Patrick and Pathoschild m: is lost, and they have the same i18n needs as c:. On mw: nobody would care about this, it could host the master copy of shared modules.
The worst surprise were the missing [$1], with a view source c: boilerplate link to a non-existing docu for a non-existing system message (on mw: and m:). I just gave up on this, m:Template:TemplateBox is now a wild mixture of the template here with a trimmed (by Patrick 2010) docu on m:. At least this doesn't put all templates in the new tracking category, something here was better than there. –Be..anyone (talk) 04:50, 27 December 2014 (UTC)
