Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-04-05 22:31:42 UTC

In order to follow maintenance in the MediaWiki namespace the option
&namespace=8 would be very helpfull.

This parameter ( &namespace=foo ) is already avalable at

The enhancement would
a) help maler wiki's to follow the develepment of larger wiki's
b) help maintaining the sister projects

Best regards Reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]

[Simplifying summary to reflect actual request]

As for this helping smaller wikis to "track" each other's MediaWiki namespaces,
it's an interesting idea, but I think in general we need a more joined-up policy
on what we consider a "master" version of the interface, how that "master" is
updated, and how to copy from it. Presently, we have a number of mostly
out-of-date LanguageXX.php files, some of which have more up-to-date
translations on various wikis, and some of which need updating to reflect errors
or changes in the English interface [which is generally the one developer's
interact with].

Still, I can see the usefulness of a namespace filter for Recentchanges, for
this and other things, although I'm not sure whether it counts as "high priority".
