Description Zachary Hauri 2008-02-03 19:33:48 UTC
The array of namespace names sits in Namespace.php, where it cannot be overridden in LocalSettings.php. Can this be moved to DefaultSettings.php, so I can rename namespaces on my wiki without using aliases?
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2008-02-04 19:21:59 UTC
Renaming *canonical* namespace names would break things relying on those canonical names, so I'd rather recommend against it. Instead set the names in the custom namespaces array; these will override the canonical forms as the default.
