Description Borgx 2006-05-11 06:48:58 UTC
Although this probably end with WONTFIX, but still worth a try. :)

Propose {{:Foo}} as shortcut for {{subst:Foo}} since there is illogical for
transcluding pages in main namespace. Or {{::Foo}} if there is logic for it.. :)
Comment 1 Rob Church 2006-05-11 09:20:37 UTC
The proposed shortcut is not acceptable. We should not be preventing users from
transcluding main namespace pages.
Comment 2 Sam Horn 2006-05-11 09:23:22 UTC
for an example of where main namespace transclusion is used in an article.
