Rename namespace in etwiki and create alias for previous namespace name
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Please do the following namespace rename for etwiki:
"Pilt:" -> "Fail:"
And since namespace name "Pilt:" is written into everything, please recreate it as a namespace alias to namespace "Fail:".

This would follow the same logic as in enwiki. "Pilt:" stands for "Image:" and "Fail:" stands for "File:" in Estonian language.
Link to community discussion is here:

Summary: I proposed the change at village pump 11 days ago, asking if anyone opposes it. No-one did, and one user said she agrees with the change.
