For the record, some concerns that came up:

  • Performance and scalability. We need a way to efficiently track and query page names across all Wiktionaries.

Right now it looks like this is a central DB table that contains a mapping of language and title.
Some caching should probably be added here.
Also a primary key should be added to aid with the WMF replication setup / future line by line stuff!

  • Normalization of page names before comparison.

Yes, and this needs to be consistent across sites!

  • Sorting of language links. We may want a separate extension for that.

Indeed, there is a note currently in the code saying:

		// TODO Move InterwikiSorter class from the wikibase extension to its own extension and use it to sort the language links
		// See
