Please note the namespace parameters given in the collapsed "technical details" section of the vote page linked to above.

I think it should be marked as a content namespace though, since it contains dictionary entries. It's not an "explanation" page like Appendix or Wiktionary namespace pages are.

Based on the documentation, "This attribute indicates that pages within this namespace should be treated as the main content of the wiki. Pages within namespaces with the content value set are counted for statistical purposes, among other things." So this would be a matter for further discussion whether reconstructions should be counted as equal to mainspace entries. As it was passed, however, the vote states that the "content" attribute should be false.

Okay we can proceed with a regular namespace.

Meanwhile, you can ask the community more input about the content namespace idea. If a consensus is found, we'll then define it later as a content namespace.

There was an error, the talk namespace name has a misplaced comma.

Thanks to have noticed that, I'm preparing a fix.
