This problem is for en.wikibooks.org.
Several pages in the "Wikiversity:" namespace are now lost after the "Wikiversity:" interwiki prefix was created. Some (but not all) of these pages are:
[[Wikiversity:School of Education]]
[[Wikiversity:School of Education/Educational Practice on School Education]]
[[Wikiversity:School of Education/Unschooling]]
[[Wikiversity:School of Education/Democratic Education]]
[[Wikiversity:School of Education/Home Education]]
[[Wikiversity:School of Education/Becoming a teacher]]
[[Wikiversity:School of Education/Skills about Teaching]]
And related pages. I was told on #Mediawiki to request the "namespace cleanup script" be run.
It should be run for all wikis that have pages prefixed with Wikiversity:, ideally, or at least all the Wikibookses. I'm told it's a problem at nl-books too.
The cleanup script will not fix this. It only fixes pages that are lost due to the creation of a namespace.
The pages have to be renamed in order to make them accessible. Please tell me how the pages should be named.
For the Dutch Wikibooks (nl.wikibooks.org):
*http://nl.wikibooks.org/wiki/Wikiversity:Nederlands should be renamed Wikiversity/Nederlands
The page is now inaccesible.
a) namespaceDupes will happily fix them if you give the conflicting prefix explicitly
b) it ought to be improved to automatically handle listed interwiki prefixes as well as namespaces
If the cleanup script cannot fix these pages, can you rename them to "Wikiversity/XXX"? Is the rename process something that we can do ourselves in some way, or do we need developer intervention?
Ok, namespaceDupes.php updated to better handle interwiki issues in r23437.
I've auto-cleaned up the affected pages on en.wikibooks, they now start with prefix 'Wikiversity-' and can be seen at:
(don't forget that final - if bugzilla strips it from the link!)
Probably the affected pages should be moved to Wikiversity if not already done, and redirected.
