Hi, just wanted to give people a heads up about
redirects on the m.wikipedia.org/
Dan Foy, Maryana, and I spoke on this stuff, and we thought it would be
best to see how this works in Wikipedia Zero land, and then if it works
well, continue dialog for the mobile web Wikipedia webroot afterward for
the non-Wikipedia Zero use case.
Usually we don't like to vary the cache on Accept-Language, but this is
one place where we're exploring the concept. It's possible to try to
figure out the language prefix in Varnish, but for now we're trying this
as a pure MediaWiki thing.
Cc mediawiki-i18n. As for MediaWiki, this is UniversalLanguageSelector
domain; outside MediaWiki, do note the project portals
(<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Project_portals>) sorely need to be
made language-aware at some point, and probably have several orders of
magnitudes more visitors than the "mdot webroots".
