Centralauth-readmore-text default message does not work on meta
Open, NormalPublic

Description

The MediaWiki:Centralauth-readmore-text message includes a link to [[meta:Special:MyLanguage/Help:Unified login]], but because of the existance of the meta namespace, this links to a meta page.

I corrected the English message on meta, but correcting all the translations locally would be rather tedious.

I believe replacing the "meta:" with a mere "m:" should work, at least on Wikimedia wikis. I'm not sure whether this message is also used outside Wikimedia wikis.

Change 334879 had a related patch set uploaded (by Nemo bis):
Use interoperable "m:" interwiki prefix instead of "meta:"

I'm not sure why we're linking the Wikimedia Meta-Wiki from CentralAuth in the first place. The target pages may not make sense for a non-Wikimedia wiki, or either prefix may not exist. :/
