Was updated in r74771.

  • Bug 25568 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

Completed from MediaWiki POV in r75244, r75241 and r75240. Wikimedia could make changes now if it wanted to, but history tells us projects will/can not be renamed.

The best way it would be to rename project to sgs.wikipedia.org and still have redirect from bat-smg.wikipedia.org

If there is very big problem to rename. Please add alias redirect temporary from sgs.wikipedia.org to bat-smg.wikipedia.org . Because we waiting for a long time and we lose readers who looks for sgs.wikipedia.org

There should definitely be redirects, yes.

Any progress here? It's been 6 years now and there are examples (be-x-old moved, jpwiki redirected) which show that this here is a resolvable task.

be-tarask was indeed moved, but it uncovered a Wikidata issue, which must be resolved before further changes: T112426.

Also please note that T10217 will be its 10th anniversary at Dec 11 2016, and that's why someone touched *the priority field*.

Okay, this does make sense. But what does speak against a creation of redirects (as a temporary solution until everything has been sorted out wrt moving)? Are there any blockers? I suppose it's not a matter of days until a move is indeed becoming realistic.

It would be better to have redirect at first: bat-smg → sgs as many people know old domain

Well, after the domain is fully moved to sgs, a redirect must definitely remain forever.

I think that what @Vogone is asking about is creating a redirect from sgs to bat-smg until a full move is possible.

This is probably doable, but it's really a question to people who understand how Wikimedia servers work better than I do.

Redirect sgs → bat-smg is not needed, because bat-smg was temporary decision until we got normal ISO code

Redirect sgs → bat-smg is not needed, because bat-smg was temporary decision until we got normal ISO code

But this means that DNS settings about sgs will be later, isn't that?

Redirect sgs → bat-smg is not needed, because bat-smg was temporary decision until we got normal ISO code

So would this redirect be temporary until we find someone to work on the actual move. ;-)

What does it mean by "actual move"? Should Samogitians do something on translations or this is just technical task? The result should be Samogitian wikipedia on sgs.wikipedia.org domain with added redirect from bat-smg.wikipedia.org . So, what choices do we have?

Just a technical task, I suppose. But it still requires some time to complete, because there is still an issue with Wikidata as outlined in a comment above:

be-tarask was indeed moved, but it uncovered a Wikidata issue, which must be resolved before further changes: T112426.

I don't think there is anything the community can do, it's just a matter of time and developers willing to invest their efforts into this task.

​we are patient. Thank's for help​
