Framawiki triaged this task as Medium priority.Jun 17 2017, 5:34 PM
Framawiki moved this task from Backlog to Config - to process on the Wikimedia-Site-requests board.
Framawiki added a subscriber: Framawiki.

"WT:" wasn't discussed and completely senseless. Aliases for talk namespaces are not practiced in ruwiki.

"WT:" was offered by Sunpriat, and it didn't cause any objection. We already have two alias to the "Обсуждение участника:" ("User talk:") space: "UT:" and "ОУ:". So I don't see any problem.

I object. Unlike "user talk", "wikipedia talk" namespace used very weakly and there are completely no sense to create alias for it.

stjn added a subscriber: stjn.

+ tracking category.

I think that abbreviating "Wikipedia talk" as "WT" was not discussed properly, so only other part of the task should be done (as there is consensus for it in the community).

Mainframe98 added a subscriber: Mainframe98.

Seeing that there's disagreement, about at least one part of the request, I'm adding Community-consensus-needed. The task is stalled, anyways.

Force_majeure updated the task description. (Show Details)

In order not to stop the job, I removed from the request part for which no consensus was reached.

I changed the link because the topic was archived.

Seeing that there's consensus for WP we can go ahead with it IMHO. We can later add new aliases if the community so decides.

Change 362267 had a related patch set uploaded (by MarcoAurelio; owner: MarcoAurelio):
[operations/mediawiki-config@master] Add 'WP' namespace alias to ruwiki

Probably namespaceDupes.php is needed after deployment.

Some pgaelinks caught up while running the namespaceDupes.php script. Hopefully null editing these pages would fix it.
