Add `en-simple => simple` to dumpInterwiki.php
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Suggested by Jura1 here: https://www.wikidata.org/w/index.php?title=Wikidata:Contact_the_development_team&oldid=1424101007#Add_%22en-simple%22_to_$languageAliases

The aim is to let interwiki links like [[en-simple:Something]] work (i.e. return the same as [[simple:Something]]), since en-simple is the language code (correctly) returned by the Wikidata query service.

@Addshore @Lucas_Werkmeister_WMDE Could you have a look at this? I'm not sure if this could have any side-effects elsewhere.

I don’t really see what this has to do with Wikidata…? This is a general Wikimedia config change, as far as I can tell.

It's based on trying to make a change in links in the query service (see linked on-wiki request). As I don't know if that'll blow up anywhere else in WD I'm trying to double check. If not that's cool.

Once this is deployed, let me know and I'll make a new interwiki map. Either in two weeks or make me backport it next week.

@Ladsgroup What's needed to get this deployed?

Rebuilding interwiki cache. It's rather simple but it's no-deploy week (WMF allhands). I'll do it on Monday.

Just deployed it. It takes two hours to propagate through caches

Great. The sample on Wikidata went from red to blue.

Thanks to all of you.
