Reuters:namespace

The Reuters namespace exists only to report the existence of a news story from that source. Anything posted in it must include a cite link to prove that there was really a Reuters news story by that name, preferably published by Yahoo News or truthout.org or some other known source. Reliance on wikinews is not acceptable.

The naming conventions of Reuters are very close to those of mediawiki and openpolitics.ca itself so a Reuters news story should be reported with exactly the same title as it was published with, e.g. Reuters:French PM unveils plans to help youths after riots. This is in contract to the AP:namespace where bad capitalization is used in titles, just as AP itself does.

It is still under consideration whether to report an AP title exactly as published, or convert it to native style or Reuters style.
