The sublocales/variants were added in 9494318cb44c171280edc00c2396fd042aa6aa7b for no known reason (T8700: Kazakh language variants in Names.php), without translations.

Localisation statistics show there are zero translated messages; the variants are currently blacklisted and were removed from the portal by an unregistered user in 2008. knows only one non-Wikimedia wiki in Kazakh. It would be nice to confirm that few or no users are using this language in their preferences on Wikimedia wikis.

Why did you assign this to Arrbee? Did you ask her in private?
