Simple English not shown in “Languages” section of pages for interwiki linking
Open, HighPublic

Description

It was brought up on Simple Talk that Simple English isn’t shown under any of the geographically sorted languages. (See: https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Simple_talk#Getting_to_simple_articles_from_English)

To test this, I went to [[Ronald Reagan]] on the English Wikipedia and tried to find a link to the Simple English Wikipedia, where it is a Very Good Article. I checked each geographically sorted section of the Languages popup, as well as searching for Simple, and was unable to find it.

I can reproduce it.

High priority, because the point of Compact Language Links is supposed to be making access to languages easier, and all missing languages bugs are high-priority.

I'll try to fix ASAP.
