list interwiki/interlanguage links?

Is there a Special Page (or magic word?) that displays a table of the
current interwiki/interlanguage prefixes for users on a MediaWiki
installation?

No.

But if you are WikiAdmin, you can install this stable extension
http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:SpecialInterwiki
which adds a new Special Page listing all prefixes for all users and 
allowing to modify/add for users with special rights.

I beg to differ.

Using the API is not a "Special Page".

That's not very keen, Peachey. The response to the OP would have led the OP
to believe that without modifying mediawiki there was absolutely no way to
get such a list, when in fact there is.

I would like to use the opportunity to suggest that such a SpecialPage 
as in [1] becomes part of MediaWiki and all Wikipedias implementations.

Thanks.  Yes, this sort of Special Page (even without the editing
feature) would seem to be a useful standard feature for making an
up-to-date listing of prefixes available to users.

And I had overlooked that users could have been pulling it from the API.

Thanks to you both,
  Jim

The Interwiki feature isn't really enabled used in default MW
installations. Perhaps try get conseus for it to be enabled on one of
the WMF wikis (for example: en.wiki), once consenus has been archieved
send onto bugzilla where it will get a security reviewed, committed to
WMF SVN (if its not already), security review fixes + patches fixed,
and then enabled.

Once it is enabled on one and showen to be working it would be alot
easier to get consenus for it to be pushed out for all WMF installs.

Are you sure about that? I thought that's how doing [[wikipedia:foo]]
in default-out-the-tarball intranet wikis worked at all.

db creation

Hi!  

I'm supposed to turn an existing MVC style site, about 20000 pages, into
a mediawiki.

I am hoping I can just do some straight forward writing of data into
the SQL database.  But before I bother to investigate,  I thought it
worthwhile to ask here about possible docs or advice on this, since
the MW db diagram from the site is totally meaningless/useless to me
-- I would rather just hack away at whatever tables I can find, etc. --
and saw nothing obvious on line.

Anyway, I understand the MW mark-up and would really really like to
just take the existing db, translate it into MW pages, and store it
appropriately.  Any thoughts are appreciated.
