Description Erdal Ronahi 2009-04-30 13:48:04 UTC
In the Kurdish Wikipedia (, some unexpected transliterations to Arabic happen. The most prominent is the change of the name of the stub category (in Kurdish "kurt" for "short"). Originally named "kurt" it has become "کورت" for unknown reasons.

Since this is a very prominent and visible category, this is a disturbing bug.

It was probably fixed in the content of the wiki.
