Wikimedia Bugzilla is closed!

Wikimedia has migrated from Bugzilla to Phabricator. Bug reports should be created and updated in Wikimedia Phabricator instead. Please create an account in Phabricator and add your Bugzilla email address to it.
Wikimedia Bugzilla is read-only. If you try to edit or create any bug report in Bugzilla you will be shown an intentional error message.
In order to access the Phabricator task corresponding to a Bugzilla report, just remove "static-" from its URL.
You could still run searches in Bugzilla or access your list of votes but bug reports will obviously not be up-to-date in Bugzilla.

Description Arno Lagrange 2008-06-04 23:53:44 UTC
The formerly redirection to gives an internal server error 500.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2008-06-04 23:59:43 UTC
We don't own the domain; it seems to be currently owned by a Patricia Berrocal in Costa Rica.

If we owned it in the past, it presumably expired and was squatted.
Comment 2 Arno Lagrange 2008-06-05 00:19:58 UTC
Haĥ, bedaŭrinde, ĉar ĝi plu aperadas tie dise. Mi tion ĵus konstatis ĉar iu provizas tiun ligilon el sia blogo. 
Comment 3 Arno Lagrange 2008-06-05 00:38:13 UTC
1) opens a "Costa Rica Directory" website
2) sends a 500 server error
Does Wikimedia own this domain name (2) ? 
Comment 4 OverlordQ 2008-06-05 00:41:46 UTC
Brion already mentioned that no, they don't own that domain.
Comment 5 Melancholie 2008-06-05 04:44:08 UTC
Vidu (klaki "Whois-Abfrage").
Comment 6 OverlordQ 2008-06-05 17:10:52 UTC
Just because the whois says Wikimedia does not imply that the WMF controls or owns the domain.  Given that the phone number is not a US phone number, and the contact email is hotmail, *AND* Brion said they do not control that domain, the logical conclusion is that:

They don't own that domain.
Comment 7 Melancholie 2008-06-05 17:39:36 UTC
@comment #6: Yes, we know!
But there is just a problem, wanting to be fixed.
And given contact information of comment #5 may just help.
Comment 8 OverlordQ 2008-06-05 17:45:44 UTC
Bugzilla is for bugs in mediawiki the software, it's extensions, or the wikipedia site itself, not problems with 3rd party websites.
