Create maintenance script to renumber namespaces
Open, Needs TriagePublic


It'd be really useful if we had a maintenance script for renumbering namespaces

Event Timeline

Is this task being worked? I have several custom namespaces that I need to renumber on several large wikis so that I can convert them into a wiki family design, and not having the ability to renumber a namespace is a showstopper for that larger project.


I don’t think anyone has really looked into how much of a pain this may or may not be…

In theory, it needs to do some (batched) updates of rows to change the namespace number. And probably some hooks/config variable to allow extension tables to be updated as necessary…
