Add Draft namespace on zhwiki

Why does zhwiki use English names for namespaces instead of localized ones?

Why does zhwiki use English names for namespaces instead of localized ones?

Same question was asked by @tomasz at T61077, then:
@Byfserag said: Because it's more convenient to input.
@zhuyifei1999 said: zh.wp uses English name too.
@Hkjacksonhk said: It seems that zh.wp has change the namespace from en to zh auto.
@bzimport said: because chinese have variants, and it's unfair to use a certain variant in namespace names. and there're some kind of codes to display chinese namespace with the variant set in preferences or in the browser.

But IMO, as only one translation "草稿" avaliable and can be blended between hans & hant, I feel still using English name is a little coy.

I think "草稿" is better than English, as we already have "模块" Instead of "Module".

草稿 is fine, because these two words are the same in both traditional and
simplified Chinese. The problem of 模块 should be discussed then.

But IMO, as only one translation "草稿" avaliable and can be blended between hans & hant, I feel still using English name is a little coy.

It seems that the "Module" Namespace is redirected to the "模块" Namespace.

Because The patch still doesn't release, I amn't sure that the "Draft" Namespace can have same function with the "草稿" Namespace.

Just a yup: What is the status now?

Someone needs to sign up the patch for deployment. (maybe I might if I am available during Monday's SWAT)

@matej_suchanek: Why did you add #notice here? Is this important enough that all users across all wikis get notified via Tech News about this?

@Aklapper: it had been added to Tech News, so I thought it should also be tagged in Phabricator...

@matej_suchanek: Oooh, thanks for your close attention then, and I am sorry for not having checked that myself!
