Special:SetAliases should remember POSTed aliases field on failure

completed by: Jared Flores

mentors: Addshore, Lydia Pintscher

The Wikibase extension ( that runs ) has a special page called SetAliases which can be see at

When POSTing bad information to the special page an error is shown but the data is no longer retained in the html form for the aliases field. The task is to make the form retain this information after errors are displayed.

See this bug report for more information / queries.
