Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2006-05-10 09:20:37 UTC

So far I am aware that only [[zh:]] and [[sr:]] are using LanguageConverter.php
at Wikimedia Foundation wikies. Beside these I have seen a testwiki using
LanguageConverter.php for Moldovan converting Latin and Cyrillic scrips. More
projects will use LanguageConverter.php in the future.

However the url from above shows that only
[[zh-cn:]] and [[zh-tw:]] are interwiki / interlanguage prefixes but *not*
[[sr-ec:]], [[sr-el:]], [[sr-jc:]] and [[sr-jl:]].

This does not seem consistent. Linking to a script variant in Chinese is
possible via wiki links but linking to a script variant in Serbian is *not*.

I thing it would be a good policy to provide script variant interlanguage links
for all projects in the future.

best regards reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]

To clarify the request after some discussion at IRC

These interlanguage links sould automaticaly include the variant=zh-cn,
variant=zh-tw etc. this means that tsetup for interwiki table should use *long*

Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2006-05-10 11:06:48 UTC
There are no such variant links; zh-tw and zh-cn interwiki 
prefixes are obsolete leftovers from before variant display 
support existed.
