Description Melancholie 2008-12-16 06:43:32 UTC
Article on French Wikinews became inaccessible (lost?) because of namespace name change on Betawiki.

See [[n:fr:Wikinews:Salle_caf%C3%A9#.5B.5BM.C3.A9dia_:_....5D.5D_has_become_unaccessable]]!

Is there a way to restore this article?

namespaceDupes.php has to be run for French Wikinews. Adding shell keyword for server admins.

> namespaceDupes.php has to be run

Would that have been done some day anyway, based on a periodical run; or ...?
Why isn't that done by default after any namespace name update (svn)?

or... when a server admin gets to it...

Ok, had to clean these up manually; looks like the bulk cleanupTitles run reassigned them to the actual Media namespace, which of course is a special that's not supposed to ever be in the DB so is inaccessible. :P  Filed this issue as bug 16839.

Renamed to 'Média - whatever'.
