Description Andreas Neuhaus 2005-08-15 01:30:20 UTC
There are several language definitions, where the namespace part of a page name
is build by using {{SITENAME}}. This generates a wrong page name, if the meta
name if different from the site name (e.g. because you've set wgMetaNamespace to
a different name).

One example is "edithelppage" of LanguageDe.php, which is defined as
"{{SITENAME}}:Editierhilfe", but should be "{{ns:4}}:Editierhilfe".

grep "{{SITENAME}}:" languages/*.php shows 11 matches in mediawiki-1.5-beta4

Some languages (like LanguageRu.php) used {{ns:project}}. Is that alright?
Comment 1 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2005-08-15 11:58:28 UTC
Replaced occurences of [[{{SITENAME}}:.*]] with [[{{ns:project}}:.*]]
in da de nds languages files for HEAD.

I think I backported those changes also to REL1_5, so can this be closed now?
