Oh, and obligatory "OK from langcom" :)

Isn't it already in WikibaseRepo.php? Is there anything else to be done?

Also, see a more general question at T144272#3322282.

I'm not sure, Amir, all I know is I can't add labels/descriptions when using ?uselang=fkv, and adding a language via T144272 fixes that.

Sorry. Didn't mean to close this -.-

The patch got reverted because it's already there. The monolingual code is there and you can add statements for that (for monolingual texts) but regarding label/description, that's something else and related to mediawiki i18n.

Thank you, @Ladsgroup! I didn't realize it was already there (obviously). What I really wanted was for it to be added to wmgExtraLanguageNames (as described by @Nikki in T144272#3335612), so that we can add labels and descriptions in Kven. How should I go about to achieve that?

In that case, it's better to rename this task (deciding to add it to wmgExtraLanguageNames is not my call)

jhsoby-WMNO renamed this task from Add monolingual code fkv (Kven Finnish) to Add [fkv] Kven to $wmgExtraLanguageNames for Wikidata.Mar 6 2020, 9:03 PM

Revisiting. :-)

I have a dataset of thousands of place names in Kven and Sámi languages that I'm hoping to add to Wikidata soon, and having the ability to add labels in Kven is quite important for that, IMO.
