Change wgImportSources value for plwikisource
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

plwikisource community requests to change value of wgImportSources MediaWiki configuration variable to make page import possible for administrators from wider range of wikis.

Current wgImportSources value:

array( 'w', 'b', 'q', 'n', 'wikt', 'oldwikisource' )

Requested wgImportSources value:

array( 'w', 'b', 'q', 'n', 'wikt', 'mul', 'de', 'en', 'es', 'fr', 'it', 'pt', 'sv' )

Rationale: make it easier for administrators to import pages from other wikis. It concerns mainly technical pages (templates. modules) and import with full history may be required to fulfill cc-by-sa license requirements for these pages (to credit authors). Change 'oldwikisource' -> 'mul' is suggested as 'mul' is more commonly used alias for this wiki.
