Jdforrester-PERSONAL added a comment to T216406: Rename `Image-reviewer` to `image-reviewer`, then migrate all its members.

All three migrated to support both image-reviewer and Image-reviewer (but note that #70 adds a tag that we'll probably want to rename too?). Should we fix filter #182 too, even though it's disabled?

Yup, but we normally do it as part of the wiki creation process.

Jdforrester-PERSONAL closed T199935: Stop creating a new wiki every year for Wikimania as Resolved.

This seems done since T199509 is resolved and now it's just about not doing something again in the future.

Jdforrester-PERSONAL added a comment to T202684: Import the old per-year Wikimania wikis into the new Wikimania wiki, each under their namespace.

I suspect there will be a lot of conflicting names,

What do you mean? The whole point of namespacing is that there aren't clashes…

I believe what @Peachey88 is referring to is conflicting usernames.
Each year's wiki was edited by a different collection of users who (up until recently, with SUL) had to sign up for the wiki independently of all past years. These usernames will have to be reflected in the edit histories of pages that are imported, whether the actual userpages are imported or not.

Note the individual wikis also have other "meta" pages like user pages; we should decide where we should we import them to.

Probably they should be added to wgContentNamespaces.

Don't we already have this with stuff like editintro/preload etc.?
