Should be done.

Just one small clarification wgTranslateNumerals = by 'default' => true, so during importing content from mul.wikisource, all Page: namespace need to be convert Indic Hindi numerical , like https://wikisource.org/wiki/Page:कपालकुण्डला.djvu/3 should https://hi.wikisource.org/wiki/Page:कपालकुण्डला.djvu/३ at new domain.

If someone makes the WikimediaMessages step I can review/merge it.

Also, being a Wikisource, make sure we have ProofreadPage translations into Hindi, including special page names and aliases. Thank you.

Can we move forward here? What are the blocking issues, if any? I would like to raise the priority.

Hi @Yann, we experienced some major problems with the script we use to create new wikis. We would like to know the root cause of thoose isues before we decide to try to create other wikis. Raising priority is not possible, priority field should reflect the reality, not wishes. Due to complexity of new wiki creation, new wiki tasks are generally low priority. Ping @Ladsgroup, as he experienced those major issues. Can you please confirm/deny what I said?

Yes, that's true. I will give these another try next week but first we need to make sure this doesn't cause issues.

The issue still exists and it's impossible to make new wikis without lots of bandage and hacks. I'm doing this in volunteer capacity and I don't have time to do it anymore :(

@Ladsgroup Are thre any tickets describing what are the script problems that this task should depend on?

@Ladsgroup Are thre any tickets describing what are the script problems that this task should depend on?

I explained in-depth in T210752#5167695

Is there a proposed timeline on this and T210752? Is there information I need to get from the contributor communities to help move this along?

@StevenJ81 Hi, all wiki creations are blocked on T212881. That's a technical problem, and a wiki cannot be technically created.
