Latvian Wiktionary project pages should be moved out of main namespace[edit]

Status:    Done with phab:T170065

Two weeks ago at wikt:lv:User talk:Longrim#Wiktionary namespace I pointed out to that wiki's sole admin that several pages in the main namespace have "prefixes" indicating that they really belong in the "Project:" namespace (currently called "Wiktionary:"). Unfortunately, Longrim has not edited that wiki — nor any Wikimedia wiki — since 11 Aug 2015, so I don't anticipate getting a response in the near future. It seems to me that what I'm requesting could be considered "noncontroversial" (assuming it's executed correctly, of course), so could a steward please consider moving those pages I'm talking about into the project namespace? I can do any necessary "WhatLinksHere" cleanup after the pages are moved, and can also followup on trying to get the name of the project namespace properly localized. (But if the steward would like to take the lead on those things, just let me know either here or on my user-talk page over there.) - dcljr (talk) 04:14, 30 June 2017 (UTC)

@Dcljr: Hi, why don't you move the pages yourself?, then you could request the unuseful redirects to be cleaned, if needed.--Syum90 (talk) 08:34, 30 June 2017 (UTC)
Very well. I had not done so mainly because some of the pages will need to be moved over existing redirects. I see that only 2 such redirects have non-trivial edit histories, however — oh, and one talk page title already has discussions at both the "source" and "target" titles, so a steward will need to do an edit history merge of those pages. I will submit an explicit request (here) for a steward to do those things after I move everything else. Before I start the whole process, however, I want to clarify something: I will be leaving redirects behind when I move the pages, as you alluded to in your response. Should I get a steward to delete these redirects before submitting a Phabricator task to rename the "Project:" namespace, or can the removal of the redirects be done after the namespace rename — or even at the same time (i.e., added to the task request itself)? I'm unclear about that aspect of the process. - dcljr (talk) 23:37, 1 July 2017 (UTC)
Hi. The pages do not need to be moved if the new namespace name is going to be called "Vikivārdnīca". I used to have the very same situation on another wiki a few years ago. Should there be any issues after the namespace configuration, a system administrator can easily resolve them. --Vogone (talk) 23:48, 1 July 2017 (UTC)
@Vogone: You mean because namespaceDupes.php can be run after the namespace rename? Also, exactly what "issues" are you alluding to that a steward (since the local admin has disappeared) would have to "resolve" afterwards (that a regular user could not)? - dcljr (talk) 19:02, 3 July 2017 (UTC) [I just realized, by "system administrator", you meant someone who can run a maintenance script, not a local admin nor a steward. - dcljr (talk) 19:27, 3 July 2017 (UTC)]
Exactly. :-) --Vogone (talk) 22:33, 3 July 2017 (UTC)

OAuth approval request for MentorHub[edit]

Status:    Done

MentorHub is a site developed by researchers at the Carnegie Mellon University Human-Computer Interactions Institute to improve learning in online communities, such as classes using Wikipedia Education, and increase long-term engagement in these communities. We would like users to be able to authenticate through MediaWiki in order to improve the user experience for students in Wikipedia Education classes. We are working in collaboration with the Wikipedia Education Foundation, and our site will be incorporated into the Wikipedia Education dashboard. --Righter1000 (talk) 20:28, 24 July 2017 (UTC)

Already Yes check.svg Done.--HakanIST (talk) 06:31, 25 July 2017 (UTC)
This was marked as already done, but the most recent version (2.0) has not been approved. This version redirects to our production server instead of a local server. --Righter1000 (talk) 20:07, 25 July 2017 (UTC)
You're right, I see the mixup. Apologies.--HakanIST (talk) 20:28, 25 July 2017 (UTC)
