CNIT - perhaps you responded to the wrong thread?

Sorry - I was writing in haste. I think whether /Special:Ask/Concept:MyConcept short address is possible, where the Concept:MyConcept will also have the printouts and other parameters (so I would not need to include them as special Ask parameter). Of course there will be no flexibility of specifying format, though one may override it in {{#ask:...|format=someformat}} definition. Or, perhaps the more generalized way is preferrable for getting short URLs for rss feeds - apache mod_rewrite, or even generalized Special page for shortening any of mediawiki "special" link.

The idea of concepts is really great. I use it to shorter and to
organize the queries at my wiki. However, the shortening and prettifying
of Special:Ask/.... URLs is not complete, because currently concepts can
define only the data querying set [[..]], not the order / formatting
parameters. These parameters are passed to format=rss generated URL
encoded as -XX values. Such RSS feed works OK for browsers, but I've got
complains from mobile clients users that their RSS clients don't like
such huge URL's. If I'll try to make a patch for concepts to store order
/ formatting parameters as well, so they won't necessarily have to be
passed as the part of Special:Ask url, will such patch be accepted? Or,
perhaps there is easier way to make pretty-looking short "concept in RSS
format" feeds?
