Description Rotem Liss 2006-03-03 21:33:30 UTC
Any link to sources.wikipedia.org is most likely targeted to a text in English,
not to the Wikisource Portal.
Comment 1 Jennifer Zagurski 2006-03-25 02:36:25 UTC
I disagree.  I went through the English and Spanish Wikipedia's correcting all
the broken links.  When I saw this bug I just searched the English Wikipedia
again to see if I had missed a bunch.  Besides old talk pages I only found one
link to sources.wikipedia.org.  It was was on a Help page about Google searching
and I fixed it.  So I think anything linking to sources.wikipedia.org is quite
unlikely to be targeted at the eniglish wikisource, because such links are
non-english and non-spanish wikipedias.

Why? The users of the other Wikipedias should know English (those of them who
don't know just won't link there), and there wasn't a Wikisource in any other
language - why shouldn't they link to texts in English in Wikisource in the
External Links? I've seen that in one page of the Hebrew Wikipedia, and I'm sure
there are others - either in the Hebrew Wikipedia and in other Wikipedias.
