           Summary: Tutorial language should use the usual dialect
                    fallback mechanisms
           Product: MediaWiki extensions
           Version: any
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Normal
         Component: UploadWizard
        AssignedTo: ne...@wikimedia.org

In UploadWizardTutorial, the method of obtaining the localized tutorial file is
overly naive; if the exact language is not available it shows an apology and
error.

However, there are fallbacks mechanisms for dialects that are well known within
MediaWiki code (for instance en-gb can fall back to en without much
difficulty).

Since the fallbacks can sometimes involve trying multiple dialects, and looking
up the existence of a file can be potentially time-consuming, the mapping of a
language dialect to the best available tutorial may need to be cached.
