Description Wikipedia:en:User:Paddu 2004-11-28 16:19:49 UTC
From the German Wikipedia, [[w:foo]] links to the English wikipedia (not
German), but [[b:foo]] links to the German wikibooks (not English).
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2004-11-29 00:27:56 UTC
w points to a central place so you can put additional language prefixes on it and have it redirect to each 
language Wikipedia.
Comment 2 Wikipedia:en:User:Paddu 2004-11-29 04:08:14 UTC
Then why doesn't b: point to a central place? The inconsistency should be
resolved one way or the other.

[[meta:Help:Interwiki linking]] says this:

w:Main Page - Wikipedia in the same language as the project the link is from (if
that is multilingual, then English)
b:Main Page - Wikibooks in the same language as the project the link is from (if
that is multilingual, then English)

That's why I chose to say "w: should link to de.wikipedia" rather than "b:
should point to www.wikibooks (central place)". Also, the central place looks
too English-centric.
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2004-11-29 04:20:36 UTC
1) b: has no bearing on w:
2) w: exists independently so that you can use it to bounce to any language in Wikipedia, as a shorthand for the 
WikiPedia: interwiki which works on various other non-Wikimedia wikis as well.
