            Bug ID: 62988
           Summary: Special:WhatLinksHere should canonicalize namespace
                    aliases given in URL
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: Special pages
          Assignee: wikibugs-l@lists.wikimedia.org
          Reporter: sc...@urbigenous.net
       Web browser: ---

The namespace parameter for Special:WhatLinksHere only accepts a numeric index:

https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special%3AWhatLinksHere&target=Example&namespace=4

It should also accept a namespace alias. At present a non-numeric value is
ignored:

https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special%3AWhatLinksHere&target=Example&namespace=Wikipedia

This would facilitate the development of utility templates.
