Bug ID: 61980
Summary: http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/wikisource:foo redirects
to english wikisource instead of french
Component: Interwiki links
CC: legoktm.wikipe...@gmail.com, s...@reedyboy.net

popolon reports on irc that links like [[zh:wikisource:Foo]] do not work (Those
types of links resolve to pages like
http://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/wikisource:foo, which should in turn http redirect
Expected behaviour: [[zh:wikisource:foo]] goes to https://zh.wikisource.org/foo
Actual behaviour: [[zh:wikisource:foo]] goes to https://en.wikisource.org/foo
Links of the form [[zh:s:Foo]] still work as expected.
popolon is quite sure that the [[zh:wikisource:Foo]] links worked as of Feb 8
as he made the edit at
and wasn't sure how interwiki links worked so tested his edit carefully.
Based on http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=suk6eGzF, there are 288 links on
fr.wikipedia.org that are based on this assumption about how interlanguage
interwikis work. There's also a further 1671 pages using [[wikisource:]] style
links, which now link to the wrong project.
I don't see anything relavent in any apache config changes, mediawiki config
change, or WikimediaMaintenance extension. [[meta:interwiki map]] links
wikisource: to en.wikisource.org, but its done that for a while, last interwiki
cache update was appearently jan 15. I think it is quite possible that
interwiki map was being overriden somewhere in our complex system of interwiki
