Creation of "Work" namespace in Bengali Wikisource
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

In main namespace (NS0) of Wikisource, books, poems, articles etc. are in the form of editions, i.e., they reflect particular printed versions. This creates difficulty in linking them to Wikipedia and other Wikisources through Wikidata. Currently we use local inter-wiki linking and disambiguation/version pages when multiple editions are present. This also creates problems for Wikidata. To resolve this, I am proposing a separate Work (রচনা in Bengali) namespace. All mainspace works (not editions but root works) will have a রচনা namespace entry, which will be used for linking to other Wikisources and also Wikipedia. The matter has been discussed in the community here: https://bn.wikisource.org/wiki/উইকিসংকলন:লিপিশালা#"রচনা"_নামস্থানের_প্রস্তাব.
