      Description

      At some places, the colon sign in text message is hard-coded at the level of PHP source code and not in the language pack. This is problem as some languages (e.g. Khmer) do not use colon signs at all.

      There is a proposal to remove all such colon signs from PHP and move them into en_ut8 lang pack. A list of changed strings would be kept (e.g. at docs.moodle.org) so translator could update their language packs. Correct approach would be to introduce new strings in order to keep backwards compatibility, but it represents more work for translators.
