By the way, as part of Google Code-in, [[User:Sn1per]] spearheaded the development of
the Lua module Module:Complex_date , which is the engine behind [[Template:Other date]]
and several other templates used for translation of date related phrases. The
[[Module:Complex date]] is now live and used on ~800k pages on Commons and is being ported
to Wikidata. After initial development by [[User:Sn1per]] the code went through a lot of
changes and testing, and a lot of new features are still being tested, but it was the big
task to get the ball rolling. Module:Complex_date allows a lot of freedom with how
complicated code one wants to write in order to get things right.
If any of you speak languages other than English please check if the template works for
your language at Template:Other_date/testcases , and help correcting it if there are
problems. We have a lot of translations (including Quechuan languages) but many languages

Thanks Tgr, you've been a fantastic mentor.
I can only second that.
Thank you Tgr for your great great work!
I am also extremely happy that the results exceeded your expectations, as I am always
afraid of "mentoring took me longer than fixing it myself" situations. Now
please spread the word for the next round. :)
