Description praveenp 2014-03-19 06:44:03 UTC
After importing a page directly from English Wikipedia, source namespace name automatically changes to destination namespace name and thus link is broken.

Import log linked to pages in മീഡിയവിക്കി (for Mediawiki) or ഫലകം (for Template) namespaces which are wrong.
Comment 1 Andre Klapper 2014-03-19 14:46:39 UTC
Any example links(s) where this can be seen?
Comment 3 praveenp 2014-04-11 10:42:02 UTC
1) This bug affects any wiki that uses a different namespace name for its namespaces than English Wikipedia.
2) This clearly affectly usability.
3) This is erratic coding. 

May I know why this is of low priority??!!
Comment 4 Andre Klapper 2014-04-12 14:14:37 UTC
Nearly every bug affects usability if you define "usability" generically enough, and nearly every bug is erratic coding; not sure how these two generic categories include specific arguments about bug prioritization. Question is how many wikis use different namespaces names, and how many wikis import from en.wp. I can also set priority to "Normal" which probably sounds better...
