Audit default search namespaces for Wikimedia wikis
Open, LowPublic

Description

@Eloquence pointed out to me that "Cookbook" is not included as a default search namespace on en.wikibooks. At some point we should do an audit of the default search namespaces for the various Wikimedia wikis and tweak them if anything obvious is missing. This will be relatively low impact, but also super straightforward to do since it'll only take around an hour to do the audit and upload a patch tweaking the defaults.


Note to future self: default search namespaces for Wikimedia wikis are stored in wgNamespacesToBeSearchedDefault on line 7094 in operations/mediawiki-config.
Accessible at any of:

Local documentation for each namespace, is linked at https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q4994250
except for EnWikibooks, at https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Help:Pages#Namespaces

debt moved this task from needs triage to later on... on the Discovery-Search board.

Moving to later as it would be good to have input from the community on which namespaces are wanted.

Once we add in more namespaces, we'll need to re-index which will take a little bit of time to do (a day or so).
