This is not a standard feature of the interproject templates (which usually just add all the links available in this case), so I don't think it's a blocker for T103102.

I think that the way the issue is described here is incorrect. See the correct and more detailed description in T154181
Now I can see that the description IS correct, but the issues are quite different. This is why I doubt that merging these was a good idea.

On the other hand, as can be seen from the Ukrainian main page on Wikimedia Commons (there are only 4 links to sister projects, while the English version has 11), solving one issue would eventually solve the other, so the merger might be OK.

I've re-opened the merged task, and attempted to explain in detail what the distinction is, and what I believe the underlying problem is (from a non-dev standpoint). Hope that helps! T154181#5243963
