Description PDD 2006-09-13 12:59:17 UTC
Depending on the interface language chosen in preferences, Metadata for images
contain inconsistent, partially incorrect links.

Example: If chosen interface language is English, "Camera manufacturer" and
"Camera model" link to the respective articles on en.wikipedia. If, on the other
hand, German is chosen, "Camera model" links nowhere and "Camera manufacturer"
links to a non-existent (and incorrectly named) category "Kategorie:Camera:Canon".

Please link to an example.
Comment 2 PDD 2006-09-13 14:17:05 UTC
Example: any picture containing Metadata. Here is one uploaded 5 minutes ago:

I think that is
the problem – it should contain an interwiki link, like the three English messages:

It's not a bug in the software.
Comment 4 PDD 2006-09-13 14:29:02 UTC
Yeah, that seems to be it. Maybe even two interwiki links (German and English) as in

It's alocalization bug then. Should these not be eported here?
Comment 5 Rotem Liss 2006-09-13 14:35:23 UTC
Only bugs in the MediaWiki software (or bugs in the extensions, or bugs in
Wikimedia sites *which can be solved only by those with shell access*, like
installing of extensions or changing site settings) should be reported here. The
default MediaWiki package does not contain such interwiki links – they are exist
only in Commons, and created by Commons admins. Therefore, please talk to a
Commons admin to change it.

propose these kind of changes in the MediaWiki namespane at (german) or pump (english)
