Description Andre Engels 2007-03-26 12:50:22 UTC
It happens to me quite often that an existing page title on the Chinese
Wikipedia cannot be found using Special:Export. My suspicion is that it happens
when one specifies the page title using traditional characters. I'm reporting
this because it causes trouble with the interwiki bot, which will falsely think
that an interwiki link is going to a non-existing page
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2007-03-26 13:57:16 UTC
Only the real title works with Special:Export, not converted aliases.
Comment 2 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2007-03-26 14:09:25 UTC
No reason we don't want Special:Export to work with aliases, though, right?  (Not that I'm 
volunteering to patch it.)

This is the PyWikipediaBot bug report which seems to depend on this one:
[ 1731566 ] Incorrect removal of Chinese interwiki link
