Is there any expected time when https://copypatrol.toolforge.org/ar will work? as until now (after 7 days) still give 404 Page Not Found: "The page you are looking for could not be found.

Per this (@Meno25 comment) this task not easily actionable now, as changing wgTranslateNumerals value to false on Commons or WikiSpecies will cause MediaWiki to stop translating all languages (Arabic, Hindi, etc.), which will inconvenience other communities. Even removing $digitTransformTable table from MessagesAr.php will lead to problems on Arabic Websites (outside Wikimedia) that use Eastern Arabic numerals.

I tried doing it myself, hopefully I didn't break it. :)

I've reverted these two changes with my work account Mvolz (WMF), but another user will need to approve the change since it's pending review.

Those are the right pages (that need removing), yes?

If I can get the right sql query (which can be hard with RTL on an LTR console), I think it's easiest to just delete them manually

Why does it have SMW namespaces? :/

Really it's confusing, as:

  • When I used {{NAMESPACENUMBER}} it gave 104, but
  • from Special:AllPages it gave Topic namespace (namespace=2600). There's 5 pages under this topic all of them already deleted (Same pages that appear on Special:BrokenRedirects

All of them are in the same namespace, right? Which is it (ideally NS id)?

Yes on the same namespace.
{{NAMESPACE}} = موضوع (In English: Type) - per this "No longer used, as of version 1.6.0 and removed in 3.0.0."
{{NAMESPACENUMBER}} = 104

Hello @Reedy and @Urbanecm, I already deleted all of this broken redirects on 2-3 May 2019, but still appear on Special:BrokenRedirects
