You are asking at the right place.
As far as i understand, a Centralized gadgets repository is being
worked on, and it is supposed to solve this issue in an elegant way,
but i don't know what its actual status is.
If i'm wrong about assuming that it's being worked on, then the
I also have to note that it's rather unusual that refToolbar is
completely integrated into the English Wikipedia - it doesn't even
appear as a gadget that one can enable or disable. This makes many
people think that it's a MediaWiki feature or extension, although
actually it is neither.

On English Wikipedia in editing window, Reftoolbar is available for every
user by default, which includes button called "Cite". On clicking this a
drop down menu comes with Template, where one can select the particular
template like Cite Web, Cite News, Cite Book etc.
And after selecting one, the window pops up and the editor fills in the
details needed for the particular citation. This makes new editors job easy
while putting the proper citations for the articles and need not worry
about the syntax of Wiki markup.
As far as I know, this thing is not available for Indic Wikipedia, can this
be made possible on Indic too ? I am specially interested in Gujarati (GU)
Wikipedia, having this Citation Template and toolbar makes editors job lot
more handy and easy.
This Mailing list was introduced to me by Amir in one Translation sprint
organized in Pune, India a few weeks ago. Do I need to file a bug report on
bugzilla for this or what should I do ? Please do guide me.
Please ignore this message if I am asking something irrelevant at wrong
