At the moment we have a Wikipedia in German Low Saxon under 'nds' and a Wikipedia in Dutch Low Saxon under 'nds-nl'. Cause the differences in writing matter less on a Wikisource than on Wikipedia, it is planned to share the Wikisource between both variants. (A precedent being no.wikisource which covers both variants of Norwegian which have separate Wikipedias.) The request for a Low Saxon Wikisource is declared eligible by the language committee (http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Requests_for_new_languages/Wikisource_Low_Saxon).
But to make it happen, we need a neutral locale as default locale. Therefore I'd like to ask to internally rename the existing 'nds' locale (which is German Low Saxon) to 'nds-de' to make place for a new shared locale with the code 'nds'. Please also create the new empty locale 'nds', with the name "Neddersassisch".
