I just added "Event report|Template:Event" to list of boilerplates for openSUSE namespace: http://en.opensuse.org/MediaWiki:Multiboilerplate-4 but I can see listed only 2 templates in openSUSE: namespace. Checked another namespace and I have only those 2 templates.
It is either LocalSettings, new version of MultiBoilerplate extension without CBoltz patch, or yet another extension that has a problem with MediaWiki 1.16.
The extension works with 1.16 in my "other" wiki (www.hortipendium.de).
The problem is just that my patch was lost (checked in the wiki.o.o SVN), probably at the wiki update.
Matthew, please apply my patch again. (If needed, I can send you an up- to-date patch, but the "old" version should still apply.)
No problem, I will do this tomorrow.
I somehow feel reminded to my statement in the "Update to 1.16" thread:

Matthew, may I post the IRC log of our conversation in #opensuse-project from some days ago that explains my proposal (hopefully) a bit more understandable so that everybody is aware of it?
Yes, and for the record, I am in support of this. Git is a much more appropriate version control system for the customizations, and using subversion updates from mediawiki.org for the core files and plugins is much less painful.
As I mentioned in the IRC chat, I think it would be best to do this with the next mediawiki update. That way, it can be done without too much extra hassle, and there is really no reason to do it between update cycles.
