I'm building a small pywikibot tool which is designed to be installed
via pip (and in turn installs Pywikibot via pip).
The tool uses the page.touch() function which is where I get a
pywikibot.i18n.TranslationError when I run it.
page.touch() gets it's edit summary from i18n.twtranslate(self.site,
'pywikibot-touch') which in turn is defined in /scripts/i18n/pywikibot/.
Unless I'm confused the Error occurs because the pip distribution does not
include the /scripts folder or the i18n submodule.
So my first question is am I just doing something obviously wrong and the
i18n submodule should have been available over pip as well?
If it's not just me then would it not make sense to have any i18n files
necessary to the Pywikibot *library* to also be distributed via the same
pip package? (i18n for scripts is another issue since for scripts you
cannot use pip).

I am a sophomore at the Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee. I am
willing to participate in Round 22 of Outreachy, and Wikimedia is an
organization I am interested in starting my Open Source journey with. I am
experienced in Python and have interests in Machine Learning and Computer
Vision. I came across Pywikibot in Wikimedia's New Developers guide, and
since it is in Python, I would like to get familiar with its tech stack and
start contributing. I would really appreciate some guidance in this regard.
