interwiki map API shouldn't add language parameter when InterwikiMagic is false
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Wiki admins set wgInterwikiMagic=false when they do not want any interwikis displayed in the sidebar as interlanguage links. It is reasonable to expect they might add some interwikis that looks like a language interwiki, linking to another wiki. If that's done, MediaWiki incorrectly reports them as language interwiki, which isn't correct. This causes unexpected things like T130381.
