UploadWizard: Missing messages <mwe-upwiz-undefined> and <api-error-stasherror>

completed by: Mayank Madan

mentors: Quim Gil

UploadWizard is an extension that allows a user to upload multiple files with a step-by-step JavaScript wizard. See also:Upload Wizard description page on Wikimedia Commons.

Currently it has this little problem:

The message placeholders <mwe-upwiz-undefined> and <api-error-stasherror> sometimes appear in UploadWizard.
This is what it takes to fix this:
1) go through all the places where message keys are constructed and add all
possibly resulting keys as code comments, per [[mw:Localisation#Using messages]];
2) check that they all exist, fix/add them where missing.
See these bug reports for more information:

Bug 54524 - Missing message <mwe-upwiz-undefined>

Bug 54460 - Missing message <api-error-stasherror> in connection with the UploadWizard
