Create Author namespace is missing on Odia Wikisource. "Author" is "ଲେଖକ" in Odia and currently it is counted as a zero namespace. Ideally Autho:AUTHOR_NAME should create ଲେଖକ:AUTHOR_NAME and "ଲେଖକ" should be a namespace.

page @jayvdb mentioned, and need to remember to prompt that as an issue in
@Jayprakash12345 umm ... This matter has been back with odWS for quite a while, we are waiting on your community to do its bit.
odWS needs to demonstrate that there has been a local discussion to have author: namespaces, and that has not been linked to this ticket at any point. If that local conversation has taken place then please add a direct link. Part of that conversation would also to be to determine the names that you wish to be applied to Author: and Author_talk: nss.
Mass-declining of all old "Blocked on community consensus" site request tasks. If this is still wanted, please make sure community consensus was reached and if so, please re-open this task and link to the discussion.
