I previously made this request to wikitech-l, and didn't receive a response. I
think the request should have come here instead.
I am a contributor to the en:Wikinews project. For the past few months we've
been working on a country portal for Australia:
We would like to start advertising this portal using pamphlets and posters in
the hope of increasing the amount of local original reporting that we produce.
Unfortunately the URL is a little inappropriate for such a purpose. We were
hoping to get this URL:
... to redirect to a multilingual portal page, that would link to the Australian
portal within each Wikinews language project. I've created a quick example:
.... modeled on the one used at www.wikinews.org.
Any idea where I should go next with this request? We basically want it to
function the same as www.wikinews.org currently does.
I'm gonna WONTFIX this for now since there's been no support I've seen for
this kind of country-and-topic-specific URL scheme. Since it's a matter of
site identity this should probably go through Foundation-l before we can
