Maybe need to regenerate the interwiki map..?

We've refreshed the interwiki cache since those wikis were created though. Several times, in fact.

I wasn't really expecting this to work, but:

Why did this fix it?

TTO reopened this task as Open.Dec 10 2015, 11:16 PM

Broken again.

Here's my theory, and it may well be completely wrong: There is a cronjob that updates the interwiki map, and it is running dumpInterwiki.php on a server that has an old copy of the operations/mediawiki-config git repository.

There is a cronjob that updates the interwiki map

nope

Ran the same thing again with the same result. Leaving this open to figure out why this has been necessary and to get it fixed properly.

Krenair added a subscriber: thcipriani.

updateinterwikicache updates the file in mediawiki-staging, but you now have to commit the file to git (I guess when it was re-added there, they took the old version from git instead of the latest one). Someone (@thcipriani perhaps?) had reverted the change for some reason.
