Description Michael Frey 2007-06-06 16:36:09 UTC
On de.wikiversity I have a problem with Special:Undelete, I try to explain it simple as possible:

A page with name
 Projekt:Online-Nachschlagewerke in der schulischen Praxis
was created. Date: I don't know

 Projekt:Online-Nachschlagewerke in der schulischen Praxis
was deleted (4. Oct. 2006)

Bug:7462, Kurs: and Projekt are now namespaces (10 Oct. 2006)

Today I tried out the Prefix "Projekt:" on Special:Undelete and found so
 Projekt:Online-Nachschlagewerke in der schulischen Praxis
But I have no acces to this old revisions.
Not with
and also not whit

I mean, this case is not a real problem for me, but I'm not sure, maybe it's a symptom of a general problem with changed namespaces and Undelete/Delete.
Maybe it's a problem that only exist on the Wkikimedia servers, caused by an update, a buggy version of delete or something like that.

I imagine the namespace dupe checker script doesn't update the archive table, so pages with namespace prefixes embedded in the title aren't updated, and things get a bit confused in Special:Undelete.
