I would like to use Arabic Wikipedia list of typos on Arabic Wikinews. When enabling the "Regex typo fixing" option, it gives me the following message: "No list of typos was found. Would you like to use the list of typos from the English Wikipedia? Only choose 'Yes' if this is an English wiki." I would like to make the Arabic Wikipedia's list of typos usable on other Arabic Wikimedia projects and also on other wikis that use Arabic as a content language. One might suggest that I create a local copy of the list of typos on Arabic Wikinews, however maintaining 7 local copies for the 7 Arabic Wikimedia projects is hard. It is easier to maintain just one list centrally. Ideally, AWB should be aware of both the local list of typos on Arabic Wikinews and the global one on Arabic Wikipedia and the local list takes precedence over the global one. @Meno25 19:09, 7 February 2014 (UTC)
@Meno25 You can set up the AutoWikiBrowser check page on any site and in the typo comment specify the full URL (starting http:// or https:// etc.) to the typo list to be used (ar wikipedia check page has such a comment with a custom local page, full URL is allowed). So you should already be able to do this without having to copy any lists.
