ProofreadPage canonical namespaces should be canonical and not localized
Closed, ResolvedPublic


The core namespaces have a canonical names instead localized ones.

For example for a Finnish wiki:

<ns id="2" case="first-letter" subpages="" canonical="User"


But Proofreadpage uses the localized string too as canonical:

<ns id="250" case="first-letter" canonical="Sivu"


It should be instead:

<ns id="250" case="first-letter" canonical="Page"

I don't think that this behaviour have been introduced in change
Iada3840561a68113985d778db731a3ef8af523e2 .

Before the change, the localized namespaces where added to $wgExtraNamespaces in the configuration file of the wiki and, if the wikis wants, the English namespaces was also added to $wgNamespaceAliases . So the localized names where also used as canonical.

So, it's not a regression introduced by this change.
