I was answering on that one and the message immediately was sent, sorry.
This is great news :-)
Of course, being already used to the templates and how they facilitate
to share contents I fully agree to that. Also for alternate spellings
etc.: I don't like them to be just redirects - sometimes it happens that
they could have a slight difference of meaning in a certain context not
everybody is aware of or that a word of a foreign language with that
spelling exists - so it would mix up things, since some would have a
redirect and others not. It would never be linear. That's why I myself
adopt the "one word/spelling one page". (btw. the same is valid for

I have a 2775 long list of nds words with German translations that I
am given permission to use thanks to Germaniennet. I am happy to

In your mail to the wikitech-l you said that you want to use redirects
to indicate alternate spellings. It would be a better idea to treat
them like we do with translations that is, have a proper description
of the word and its origin (what orthography or origin) and refer for
all the rest to a selected word.
