Hallo Servien!

I assume that the sitename should follow $wgMetaNamespace.

best regards reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]

In MediaZilla issues related to the internationalization of the MediaWiki
software are reported under "Product:" MediaWiki and "Component:"

All requests related to the projects run by the Wikimedia Foundation are
reported under "Product:" MediaWiki. For opening new projects "Component:" Site
requests" is used. I have seen most of the requests about changing sitenames,
adding new namespaces, enabeling subpage functionality at namespaces reported
with "Component:" "General/unknown".

Sitename should be "Wikipedie" as well... but that seems to be correct on the
wiki. It's only the Wikipedia namespace which is incorrect.

Just change it in future. People get the idea. And don't get it wrong when you
do correct them. ;)

If I type in Wikipedia:Spelling I end up at the English Wikipedia (the article
spelling :S)... doesn't really look solved to me :P


Please fix this as soon as possible, because no Wikipedia pages can be accessed at
the moment (some of which are very important to beginners etc.)

but isn't Wikipedia:xyz also suppose to work... like Special: does for Speciaol:?

...and why does it link to the English wikipedia instead of placing it in
the "article" space?

robchur wrote:

No. "Wikipedia" is not the canonical namespace name, that's "Project".
"Wikipedia" becomes an interwiki prefix if it's not a namespace name.
