Summary: Manual account creation through e-mail results in bad
                    link (French).
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: 1.16.2
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: Normal
         Component: Email

Dear MediaWiki developer team,

For various reasons I am creating manually the accounts of the people who
access a wiki on my site. Everything works fine. When I click "par courriel"
(via e-mail), the mail is sent to the address of the intended person, however,
the latter receives something like this:


Quelqu’un a créé un compte pour votre adresse de courriel sur My Wiki
( intitulé « ******** », avec le mot de
passe « ******* ».
Vous devriez ouvrir une session et modifier dès à présent votre mot de passe.

Ignorez ce message si ce compte a été créé par erreur.


This is not rendered here, but the link is clickable, however, unfortunately,
the closing parenthesis is taken into the link thus making the following in the
URL field in the default web browser of the user:

As you can see, the parenthesis is coded into the link leading to a "404 Not

I am not sure whether the problem persists if the language is changed, however.
I haven't tested it yet.

Hoping it helps to improve MediaWiki, I remain,

Yours faithfully,
Peter Deli
