Maybe requesting an importeur flag from stewards maybe a more faster option? (Than you can export and upload pages)

Currently sysop not able to import because import sources not available.

Yeah, but if you are a member of the group importers (in your language આયાતકારો) you are able to upload XML Files, which you can get, if you go to Special:Export at any other wiki. This group is handeled by stewards, so you have to ask them. (But this is not a reason to decline this task, but a temporary solution).

Great. I will ask to steward on meta for temporary solution.

Steward isn't granted this user right to me.

i am temporary local sysop here. currently no any other active member here.

this community need to set up lots of basic mediawiki pages, module and templetes. i am local sysop here but dnt able to import pages. i am a temporary sysop so its really need and need urgently.

Its really need urgent but anyone can not hear me. I'm stop my work. Please do not wasting my time.

Thanks for reminding and I'm sorry for the frustration.
I'm not sure how to proceed if only one person is active.
Maybe you could bring this up on the discussion page of https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Requesting_wiki_configuration_changes ? :-/

For smallest wikis, a notification of the village pump, so the potential contributors could comment is enough. We don't have any objection during 10 weeks (or comment another source is needed).

The request is also reasonable: it's usual for starting project to have import sources.

So I think we can proceed and merge the patch.

Could you confirm import work as expected?

One of bug detected. During page importing all templates are imported at the same page namespaces. Like i have imported 'વિકિપીડિયા:સ્વશિક્ષા' from guwiki at the 'વિકિસૂક્તિ' namespace. All templates also import to namespace of વિકિસૂક્તિ.
