Description -jkb- 2006-07-03 13:49:38 UTC
I am not sure if I am on the right place. First, Thanks for activing the
transwiki import on cs.wikisource. I tried it twice - all OK. But some questions
arised - moving of the authors in the history, and GFDL. Please see my page on
Meta :m:User:-jkb-/Transwiki bug report, where I describe the problem. Thx, ~~~~

No, please post a clear and concise report HERE, giving us all the details.
Shoving stuff on a wiki page is not good enough; what happens when it gets moved
or deleted?

All details pertaining to a bug should be placed in the bug report.
Comment 2 -jkb- 2006-07-03 13:55:35 UTC
OK, my reassons are here:

I tested the transwiki import as I moved some pages from cs.wikipedia to
cs.wikisource. it is fine. Nevertheless, the following points could bring some
difficulties, when (according to GFDL) we would like to judge, who was the
editor(s) of the page. So: I moved a test page where three persons were editing:
* me, registered in both domains, edits in both domains
* a user (say AAA), registered only on cs.wikipedia, not in cs.wikisource
* a user (say BBB), registered in both domains, but with no edits in cs.wikisource
I have got following results.
* the signatures on the talk page of the test page were all red; I guess the
reason is, that the name space for User on the cs.wikipedia is Wikipedista, but
on cs.wikisource it is named Uživatel
* the history page showed another results:
:* me was blue
:* AAA was blue, the click on his blue name in history is leading to his
:* BBB was red, the click on his red name is leading to his (formerly created)
empty page
My explanation: obviously, if the user does not exists, his page is made somehow
virtually, and I get his contributions, consisting from his edits in the moved
page; if somebody with this name exists, so ok, he stay red as his page is
empty. But two questions: what happens in the following cases:
* while I move the page, a user called BBB is already registered in
cs.wikisource, but he is not that BBB from cs.wikipedia
* after I have moved the page, where a user AAA from cs.wikipedia contributed, a
new user registers on cs.wikisource with the name AAA, but he is not that AAA
from cs.wikipedia
I am not quite sure if there are some problems with GFDL in such a marginal
case, but anyway... I would propose, that the users, noted in the history, will
get a prefix like cs.wikipedia:User:XXX and not only User XXX, or something like
that. OK, finito, [[User:-jkb-|-jkb-]] 13:50, 3 July 2006 (UTC)
