Added and I'll try to take care of the gerrit stuff too.

Also, Finnish needs to be added to the Wikivoyage portal. (https://www.wikivoyage.org)
Both the direct link and as a language option for the search bar. Thanks,

The inline language codes are linking to Wikipedias. So for instance, ;de: is linking to de.wp instead of de.wikivoyage. Not sure if that can be fixed locally? Is this it? https://fi.wikivoyage.org/wiki/Toiminnot:Interwiki

Ah, right. I misunderstood. Guess I'll have to nag a Steward then :)

OK, no problem. But just for the record, the dump doesnt include user accounts. It's not a full database, just an XML export. There are userpages but no actual accounts behind them. We added a prefix (WT-) to those userpages to make it clear they precede the migration to Wikimedia and avoid any possible future pagename conflict.

Thanks, and by the way, we have an XML dump that is to be imported into this wiki. Can that happen as part of the deployment process or do we do it manually afterwards?

Nope. You got it backwards. The issue here is that the Commons Category:Anastigmat page does not interwiki-link back to Anastigmat on Wikipedia.

That's the point of this ticket, to use the Commonscat property to generate interlinks. This would solve everyone's problem in a simple, elegant way.
The Wikidata folks are concerned about internal consistency, so they want Articles paired with Articles and Categories paired with Categories. That's fine, I understand their desire to be consistent. Everyone else, the other projects, are not interested in the way Wikidata organizes itself and just want the links to show up because Commons categories function, in practice, as their main articles. The real articles (Galleries as they call them) are not very common, especially for less known subjects.
These two perspectives are not inherently mutually exclusive. The problem is that currently the only way to make interwiki links show up in the Commons category page is to add that category page to the other sites list in the Wikidata item, which breaks symmetry. This solution would solve the linking problem without breaking symmetry.

That's fine by me but is there some way to automate this? All those categories are stored in the Wikidata items already. Manually adding 47000+ links is not something I look forward to, and that's just for English. (that's the total article count for enWV so in practice it'll be a bit less but it's in the ballpark)
