"wikipedia:" is a interwiki prefix at many sites where MediaWiki is installed.
Through that "wikipedia:" prefix all Wikipedia language projects can be
addressed with all the benefits:
- using [[wikipedia:ru:Заглавная_страница]], [[wikipedia:hi:चीन व भारत के
राजनीतिक संबंध]] you do not need the long url's; you may type / copy the titles
Please tray to find a configuration where the interwiki prefixes to
sisterprojects *and* the language prefixes can be used from *outside* the same
as *wikipedia:meta:* works now.
You can see at the reference url http://kb.mozillazine.org/User:Gangleri
- [[wikipedia:meta:foo]] "reaching the target"
We can not expect that other wiki's will configure interwiki links to all
sisterprojects and special wiki's of the WikiMedia foundation. If the "gateway"
"wikipedia:en:" can be addressed / reached why people should not be able to
reach the wiki's behind using wiki syntax?
It might be that the idea how to implement this would not come immediately. Then
please do not close the request as INVALID today.
Similar bugs marked invalid are:
- bug 2226: Interwiki links to other sites than Wikipedia
- bug 2406: links as [[wikipedia:de:]] will fail at non wikimedia foundation wikis
