The request is now partially done—you only need to wait until the translations provided in Translatewiki are migrated into the core repository (I have no idea how long it make take, though).

  1. {{SITENAME}}

_Not_ affected:

  2. NS_FILE

Okay, NS_FILE and NS_FILE_TALK should be changed through TranslateWiki (I am initiating this case). But adding namespace aliaces (see Comment #1) should be doing by this bug.

Also NS_PROJECT was not be changed (see

Sorry, I shouldn't have missed that :-/

Hmm, but

'Wikipedia' => NS_PROJECT,

was still not be added into aliaces for udmwiki. Why?

Also 'Суред' and 'Суред_сярысь_вераськон' is current names, but after exporting actual language file these should be keeping as aliases. Maybe add their preliminarily?

That's because 'Wikipedia' is added as an alias for NS_PROJECT for all Wikipedia projects:

'wgNamespaceAliases' => array(
  // defaults to aid when things are switched
  '+wikipedia' => array( 'Wikipedia' => NS_PROJECT ),

As far as I am told, the former names for the NS_FILE and NS_FILE_TALK namespaces will be added as aliases by Translatewiki staff when they update the MessagesUdm.php file. Don't worry. (Gerrit Change I7e09fb8d2ff72e20b9d0bae45e51cf3c78981222) | change APPROVED and MERGED [by Reedy]

Marking resolved. Remaining "work" is on translatewiki. Might need to poke Siebrand/Raymond to make sure they get exported

NS_PROJECT was renamed succesfully.
