En: already implements the "one link" criterion, that is, articles are
counted if they contain at least one link. No idea if de: etc. are already
As far as I can see, nl: is not. The query
SELECT COUNT(*) FROM cur WHERE cur_text LIKE "%[[%" AND cur_namespace=0 AND
gives 8475, while the main page gives 6944 (for en: they are reasonably close
- 134469 for the query, 134482 on the main page - difference might come from
edits between the two counts were made).
But it is not comma count either, that gives only 6784 (6791 if redirects
are counted as well). So what is it?
