Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

The following template description is not displayed when the template is inserted in an article.


This template is used by {{GitStatus/main}} to get the development status of the FlightGear repository.

Per default the status is set to frozen at July or December 16th, and open at January or June 17th. See also the release plan.

Note Currently the dates can not be set further than one year ahead.


     | frozen_until = {{{frozen_until|}}}
     | closed_until = {{{closed_until|}}}
     | status       = {{{status|}}}
     | date         = {{{date|}}}

All parameters are mandatory in order to handle the parameters that can be given to {{GitStatus/main}}.

Will force a frozen status by giving the (estimated) end date of the frozen status. For situations like the release of 3.2(?).
Will force a closed status by giving the (estimated) end date of the closed status.
Will force a certain status regardless of any other parameters. Either of open, frozen or closed.
Overrides the current date.

Date format

While there is some flexibility in the date formats that can be used, it will be less ambiguous if given a year with four digits and the month with letters.

Returned output

  • A valid status. Either of open, frozen or closed.
  • If status is used but not valid the template will return bad_status.
  • If both frozen_until and closed_until are used the template will return both_frozen_and_closed_until.
