Flow conversion assumes a talk page's namespace allows subpages
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

The convertNamespaceFromWikitext.php script moves the existing wikitext talk page to a /Archive_NN subpage. This is a bad idea if the namespace is not in $wgNamespacesWithSubpages, since the archive page will still be a Flow board.

This happened in officewiki's Archive_talk namespace.

Most talk namespaces allow subpages. Probably the conversion script in a pre-flight check should warn and exit if the namespace does not.
