Add monolingual language code en-in (Indian English)
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Please add en-in as "Indian English".

For context on this dialect see
https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q1348800
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indian_English

For comparison consider that Phabricator (or whatever controls the Wikidata language process) has already logged
British English (en-gb)
Canadian English (en-ca)

Indian English is, of course, more different and spoken by many more people than these other two. I expect that adding en-in is noncontroversial in the context of these other two existing already.

My objective for this is to get Indian English text noted as such in Wikidata language property fields. I asked about this at the Wikidata Project Chat at
https://www.wikidata.org/w/index.php?title=Wikidata:Project_chat&oldid=815344802#Which_property_is_the_origin_of_automated_language_checks?
and the answer was to request here on Phabricator.

Hi, please explain where / to which software to add this (as this task has no project associated). Is this about MediaWiki?

Is this about https://translatewiki.net/wiki/Translatewiki.net_languages#Language_variants ?

@Aklapper

Here is a screenshot showing where this language list should appear in Wikidata.

My objective is making "Indian English" an option in Wikidata drop down menus which ask "what language is this text". I asked at Wikidata project chat and was directed that Phabricator manages this process.

Here are some Phabricator tickets which seem to be trying to manage the same issue

https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T155425

Am I in the correct place to address this issue?
