Remove aliases `minnan` and `zh-cfr` for the Min Nan Wikipedia
Open, MediumPublic

Description

The Min Nan Wikipedia (zh_min_nanwiki) has the URL https://zh-min-nan.wikipedia.org/ and the aliases https://nan.wikipedia.org/, https://zh-cfr.wikipedia.org/ and https://minnan.wikipedia.org/.

zh-min-nan and nan are interlanguage prefixes and link the article with the Min Nan Wikipedia. zh-cfr and minnan are interwiki prefixes and create an inline link to the Min Nan Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Interwiki). Example: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:ExpandTemplates?title=Special%3AExpandTemplates&wpInput=[[zh-min-nan%3AFoo]]%0D%0A[[nan%3AFoo]]%0D%0A[[zh-cfr%3AFoo]]%0D%0A[[minnan%3AFoo]]

nan is the standard conform language code for Min Nan Chinese. zh-min-nan is the grandfathered alias. (https://www.iana.org/assignments/language-subtag-registry/language-subtag-registry)

The language codes zh-cfr and minnan are only used in MediaWiki. zh-cfr was added in rSVN3742. minnan was added in rSVN4395. Both were removed in rSVN28546.

The redirects https://zh-cfr.wikipedia.org/ and https://minnan.wikipedia.org/ are not needed anymore.

The interwiki prefixes zh-cfr and minnan are not needed anymore.

The swap of Traffic for Traffic-Icebox in this ticket's set of tags was based on a bulk action for all such tickets that haven't been updated in 6 months or more. This does not imply any human judgement about the validity or importance of the task, and is simply the first step in a larger task cleanup effort. Further manual triage and/or requests for updates will happen this month for all such tickets. For more detail, have a look at the extended explanation on the main page of Traffic-Icebox . Thank you!
