Helplogin-url

In Helplogin-url ("https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:MyLanguage/Help:Logging_in") is there a reason why there is no space between the colon and the word 'Logging'?

Also, I am not sure I understand how this message is used. According to the documentation it is used in Userlogin-helplink ("Help with logging in"), but how?

why there is no space between the colon and the word 'Logging': Because Help: is the namespace name.

Ah. Silly me. I have amended the qqq page.

So, this is a help page, with many different names including 'Logging in' in English. I am not sure that I understand how this works when the site language is different to the interface language. I have tried to experiment here on translatewiki.net but I can't find the link.

I don't think this is worth spending too much time with. It's a very stupid idea of MediaWiki, that it links documentation where it does not exist (on the local wiki). We should work on Bug 43591 – Link translatable help pages on mediawiki.org from the relevant special pages, which is also the approach Translate uses for its own documentation.

Lloffiwr, Purodha: Steven said they're going to remove the link from MediaWiki core and to put it only in Wikimedia projects messages. Can you help making mw:Help:Logging in up to date and tagging it for translation? mw:Help:Editing pages needs help too, because it's going to be linked from MediaWiki:Edithelppage/en (it also has old translations to migrate).
