No dupes found!

$ php namespaceDupes.php plwiki

Looks good!

Notified users in #wikipedia-pl IRC channel.

Have fun with the new namespace :-)

There have been serious doubts raised in the community about this (including myself). This is introduced to resolve some problems with article history merging/splitting.

In my opinion this should be done on the database level (revision and archive) tables and launching a whole new namespace for this is simply wrong.

Please revert this change until the proper solution is agreed on.

Sorry for the mess, but I agree that the change should be reverted. I thought there was a consensus for the change, but it seems that not everyone interested noticed the discussion during almost two months...
