Two wikidata items with the same sitelink
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

Hi,

I discovered that 2 wikidata items share the same sitelink, which is supposed to be impossible, see https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Help:Sitelinks :

Note that each Wikimedia/Wikipedia page can only have one sitelink to any one Wikidata item page.

The items are :

Both linking to https://fr.wiktionary.org/wiki/Annexe:Conjugaison_en_allemand/abschlie%C3%9Fen and also both linking to https://de.wiktionary.org/wiki/Flexion:abschlie%C3%9Fen (it's a perfect duplicate)

I just tried to add the link a third time in the sandbox, and this time I get the expected error

Could not save due to an error.
    The save has failed.
    Site link dewiktionary:Flexion:abschließen is already used by item Q64008110. Perhaps the items should be merged and one of them deleted? Request deletion of one of the items at d:Wikidata:Requests for deletions, or ask at d:Wikidata:Interwiki conflicts if you believe that they should not be merged.

Which exclude the possibility that we forgot to activate the "only 1 sitelink" rule on Wiktionary sitelinks.
