Dear developers,

_Question 1_
how do you implement/enable this in a Mediawiki:
- internal links to Wikipedia
  like: [[wikipedia:de:Berlin|Berlin]]
- internal links to Commons
  like: [[file:Berlin_night.jpg|miniature|Berlin]]

_Question 2_
This is requested in most Mediawiki installations.
But in many Mediawiki installations it does not work.
So I fear that a lot of Wiki maintainers do not knew,
how to implement/enable this...

Maybe it is possible to implement/enable it *as default*
in all Mediawiki in the delivery state?

Bests, Markus
