Rename Wikinews namespace to Wikinieuws on nl.wikinews, with Wikinews as alias
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

The community on nl.wikinews has decided to name the project Wikinieuws, a Dutch translation of Wikinews. The name of the project is usually equal to the name of the project namespace. Currently the name of the project namespace is Wikinews.

Request: please change the Wikinews namespace to Wikinieuws, and let Wikinews be an alias namespace for the Wikinieuws namespace.
