Perhaps this is still Community-consensus-needed, because I have looked a large number of users, they're still using "zh-classical (on zhwiki)" instead of "lzh (on zhwiki)" on their userboxes. By the way, on Incubator, the Wp/lzh is redirected to Wp/zh-classical (@Byfserag: ?!), which is also misleading (at least) me: users are still claiming that "zh-classical" is a valid code.

Stalled since renaming (T21986) is blocked on T145535 (e.g. T112426.).

Can we add an alias rather than rename?

Hmm, I still think that renaming URL is a better way, as this Wikipedia doesn't have high traffic streams and actually, no actual opposition.

If you're asking Interwiki prefixes, that's already done (T23915 try it here); for DNS/CNAME redirecting, file a subtask and ping 1~3 random Operations members; local Interwiki links can be changed by a bot, anything else?

Any update on this? It should not be too difficult to be consistent with the ISO code, in either way we could have a CNAME from zh-classical.wikipedia.org to lzh.wikipedia.org, and avoid any potential problem.
BTW, the consensus is to use ISO code already, I see no reason to debate it on a case by case basis, this is not an extraordinary situation. A CNAME record would solve any potential problem.

T167513 is deployed, so any url changes needed on other sites for the sub-domain shfit to happen can be done.
