Changing the Romanian namespaces (diacritics)

After a long discussion at [1] we decided to migrate ro.wp from s/t-cedilla (ţ, ş) to s/t-comma (ț, ș). I have changed the names at [2], but we need the old names to be kept as aliases.

Below is a list of standard namespaces with the _OLD_ spelling. They need to be used for _ALIASES_:

1: Discuţie
3: Discuţie Utilizator
5: Discuţie Wikipedia
6: Fişier
7: Discuţie Fişier
9: Discuţie MediaWiki
11: Discuţie Format
13: Discuţie Ajutor
15: Discuţie Categorie

In addition to that, there are 2 more namespaces specific to the Romanian Wikipedia which need to be converted (from the form on the left to the form on the right):

101: Discuţie Portal -> Discuție Portal
103: Discuţie Proiect -> Discuție Proiect

A bugzilla bug with the same request exists [3] and should be closed after making the changes.

Thank you for your help.

Linked to the request above, I want to ask you if there is anyone able and willing to run a bot to replace ţ,ş with ț,ș in all the Romanian translations. This needs to happen at a later time, after all the preparations are finished on ro.wp.

Strainu21:39, 17 May 2010

Will make the replacements now, and ask Raymond to hold off on committing 'ro' until the namespaces are active. Committed the namespaces in mwr:66591, so Wikimedia can merge per bugzilla:22616.

Siebrand22:32, 17 May 2010

Bot is running now. Will probably take a while.

Siebrand23:16, 17 May 2010

SieBot made between 3,000 and 3,500 updates in ~10,000 /ro pages.

Siebrand07:01, 18 May 2010

'ro' excluded in script 'bpmw' for the moment.

Raymond05:24, 18 May 2010

Please give me a ping when preparations are finished. Then I will export the changes from translatewiki into SVN. The day after my export it will be live on all Wikimedia projects.

Raymond08:19, 19 May 2010

I have just reactivated 'ro' in the MediaWiki export, so Raymond will most probably automatically export the Romanian updates later today, if he remembers to use the correct export window :).

Siebrand08:25, 19 May 2010

I'm afraid it is still too early. Please hold on until we can have all the preparations finished - I estimate another week or so.

Strainu16:51, 20 May 2010

It was committed last evening and is probably live already in the entire Wikimedia cluster since early this morning (CEST).

Siebrand18:34, 20 May 2010

Yep, I've just noticed it. Well, we'll just have to deal with that :) Thanks for your help Siebrand and Raymond. Hope you won't mind if I come back from time to time and ask you to re-run that bot.
