Pywikibot has some tests which use test.wikidata in https://github.com/wikimedia/pywikibot-core/tree/master/tests , however these test wikis appear to have a very odd configuration wrt integration tests. Where should people (such as #Google-Code-In-2014 participants) do analysis / testing of integration of client and repo?
"You can use [[testwiki:|testwiki]] or [[test2wiki:|test2wiki]] an test clients." was added to the main page [[https://test.wikidata.org/w/index.php?title=Wikidata:Main_Page&diff=5229&oldid=3361| in March]] by user [[user:GZWDer]], and I guess that is true in a sense. However it doesnt appear possible to add sitelinks to testwiki or test2wiki, as far as I am aware.
Could someone confirm that (and that I am not going crazy)?
Is there an open Phab task about that? (I searched in Phab for "testwiki wikidata" but came up empty).
1. go to https://test2.wikipedia.org/wiki/0.8319452734493841_Moved
2. click add sitelink / add a lang / link with page
3. input language: extwiki
4. input page: Wikipedia
5. click 'Link with Page' to perform the operation
Result: error: "The external client site 'enwiki' did not provide page information for page '0.8319452734493841 Moved'."
Which is odd, I think..?
If the test wikis arnt able to be used together for integration testing, what other options are there?
1. use test.wikidata as client and repo , or
2. use beta.wmflabs.org, or
