Seems straightforward. The schema change was supposedly performed on all wikis so it's just a matter of setting the global.

Meanwhile, we can define it for this wiki.

Both things requested above: mark the default language as <code>mul</code> and make it so that individual pages can be edited. See e.g. https://wikisource.org/w/index.php?title=Index:Festival_Romanistica.pdf&action=info and https://outreach.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Main_Page&action=info (the latter is editable and the former is not).

Since the translate extension was enabled (T201814), which includes this feature by default, I believe this can be closed. I don't think setting the default page language to mul is possible without changing the wiki language itself, and that would probably have really bad side-effects, so it's probably better to keep it at English. But please feel free to reopen (and possibly change the task description/title) if I'm wrong.
