The link of some localized articles with their English parent is lost.
It means that they are declared unstranslated in the localization dashboard.

Do we know how many non-English articles there are after the import that lack an English parent?
These can be fixed through the django admin as they're found. We're out of time to generate a new wiki migration in time for the current push window.

Yeah, that was my thought, too. Would be good to know roughly how many we're talking about here though. (just these two? ten? hundreds?)
For what it's worth, the migration is trying really hard to figure out parent-child relationships, so I doubt this could be improved in the script any further.
In some cases it may have failed because there was already a translation of that document in that locale.

Still, my question was if it's possible to see how many non-English articles there are after a migration -- if it's just a handful, then there's no reason to worry about it, but if this happens to a lot (say, 50) articles, than it might be indicative of a bigger problem.

Though, with just 13 minutes to go before we push, it might not make that big a difference anyway. We'll just have to make sure we connect them after the push.

Get help with Firefox 4 beta is just redirected to the main Firefox startpage since that's going to be our new Firefox 4 home page.

I've fixed the linkage for the french Ask a question page so it should work now.

After the migration, "Installing Firefox" has been changed and it became "Untranslated" in every locales. I don't know if it is a different issue from the one in comment 0.

Cheng (or someone else), what's the procedure for linking pages back together? There's indeed something really strange going on with https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Installing%20Firefox because the language selector lists a LOT of languages, but no matter which one you select it keeps showing the English content.

I've been connecting them via the admin.  Can you please put things in http://etherpad.mozilla.org:9000/kb-sprint-admin-tasks (Section 2) and I'll be doing them throughout the day.

Will this task file be used after KB sprint because I filed new tasks?
The connecting-them-through-the-admin solution has been working.
