            Bug ID: 59883
           Summary: Create maintenance script to import the contents of
                    the Help namespace from MediaWiki.org or another wiki
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: 1.23-git
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: Maintenance scripts

A lot of wikis leave the Help namespace empty because no one with sysop rights
gets around to exporting the Help namespace from, e.g., MediaWiki.org and
importing it to the local wiki. It's a multi-step process requiring several
trips to Special:AllPages, Special:Export, and Special:Import on the two wikis
since there are a few thousand help pages, for those who want everything. Maybe
one will only want to get pages in [[mw:Category:Help]] and possibly
[[mw:Category:Extension help]], though. See [[mw:Project:PD help/export]]

Another possibility might be for a wiki to get rid of its Help namespace and
create a help: interwiki prefix pointing to MediaWiki.org, e.g.
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:$1 Then they give up the ability to create
customized help pages, though.
