           Summary: TemplateData's "Manage template documentation"
                    confusion with Template:Documentation
           Product: MediaWiki extensions
           Version: master
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: TemplateData
       Web browser: ---
   Mobile Platform: ---

When you edit a template, TemplateData adds a
   [Manage template documentation]
button which takes you to a "Template documentation editor" dialog.

but on many WMF wikis, templates use something like Template:Documentation to
transclude documentation, so users will have just seen a
   Template documentation [view] [edit] [history] [purge]

It's quite confusing (and if you edit Template:Documentation itself...
INCEPTION :) ). Neither has a Help link or "What's this?" tooltips explaining
the difference.

The terminology should be changed to "Manage template parameter information".
Perhaps Template:Documentation could detect that TemplateData is around;
ideally Template:Documentation could be rewritten to show the <templatedata>
description and parameter information ("Don't Repeat Yourself").
