The language code (macro code) no is too general for the nowiki project and should be changed to the more specific nb. The following two variables/fields need to be updated:
This will correct the language label in both the sidebar interwiki links and the Wikidata interwiki interface
- from Norsk / Norwegian
- to Norsk bokmål / Norwegian bokmål
This solution would also help alleviate or make obsolete:
Note that this task does not involve changing the subdomain of the nowiki project. These two tasks should be tackled separately. Changing the language codes without changing the subdomain name will solve some technical problems, while allowing the nowiki community to keep their beloved subdomain name status quo.
Since this change will have a minimal impact on the user experience, apart from correcting the Interwiki language name, and nobody has been disputing that the Interwiki language label/name has been wrong since rMW0d82d154476bbc6adbd015072c6c90616ea8cdea was implemented (afaik), this ought to be an uncontroversial task from a language political viewpoint. Whether anyone will dispute it anyway, remains to be seen.
For the record, the variable $wgLanguageCode is already set to nb and has been for quite some time. There have been no protests against this so far.
