Shouldn't we wait some days? This particular namespace seems currently in discussion, don't it?

Sure. There hasn't been any clear opposition but I asked the community again to speak up. I'll check on this again in a week.

I believe there is consensus for adding both a portal namespace (3 against 1) and an author namespace (all 4 in favor).

As before, the author space should be called Höfundur: and the corresponding talk space Höfundarspjall:
The portal space should be called Gátt: and the corresponding talk space Gáttarspjall:

Dereckson, can you take another look now?

Could someone take a look at this?

Should this be reported again or what is the process here?

We're just waiting for Dereckson to say something.

Two additional questions before we proceed here (to avoid future bugs):

  • (1) Do you want any of the namespaces to be treated as content namespaces ([[mw:Manual:$wgContentNamespaces]])?
  • (2) Do you want any of them to be searched by default ([[mw:Manual:$wgNamespacesToBeSearchedDefaul]])?

I see there are a couple of main namespace pages that begin with "Höfundur:"[1]; this will need to be resolved either manually or by running a maintenance script — see [[mw:Manual:Using custom namespaces#Dealing with existing pages]] for more details.

There aren't too many pages like that, but if you don't want to move them manually, this will require involving someone with direct access to the servers (and the addition of the 'ops' keyword to this bug).

I will move these pages manually to Höfundur2: to prepare.
