["Template:Project:About",["Wikipedia:About","Wikipedia:ABOUTSELF","Wikipedia:About Fair Use","Wikipedia:About the Sandbox","Wikipedia:About essay searching","Wikipedia:ABOUTEVERYTHING","Wikipedia:About DramaQueenipedia","Wikipedia:About translating German Wikipedia","Wikipedia:About page view statistics","Wikipedia:About template mania"]]

Project:About returns seemingly correct results, but Wikipedia:About does not.

It's a bit weird that it manages to convert Project even though it's not the namespace (Template is), but misses the correct results.

Other namespace problems with opensearch: bug 22773, bug 40210
Comment 2 Chad H. 2013-10-29 07:57:41 UTC
Is this actually a bug with lsearchd or is it a more general problem with the opensearch implementation?

(To test, try using opensearch on a wiki with the new Cirrus search, such as or enwikisource)

If it's a bug with lsearchd only I'm inclined to WONTFIX as we're hitting the end of life for that. If Cirrus has the problem too then we'll need to fix it wherever the problem is.
Comment 3 Matthew Flaschen 2014-01-06 23:57:46 UTC
Apparently, lsearchd.  The reported symptoms are still reproducible (on English Wikipedia).  However, English Wikisource seems fine:

$ curl ""

$ curl ""

If it had the same problem, I would expect it to suggest Wikisource:About (which does exist), as it suggested Wikipedia:About.
Comment 4 Chad H. 2014-02-13 22:09:26 UTC
Marking WONTFIX then, as lsearchd has been end of lifed and this seems fixed by Cirrus.
