The N'Ko language doesn't appear in the iOS Wikipedia app
Open, LowPublic

Description

The N'Ko Wikipedia (nqo) was created in September. It still doesn't appear in the iOS Wikipedia app.

You cannot find it on the main page, or in the interanguage links list on the Martin Luther King Jr. article, even though they are linked through Wikidata.

It may affect more wikis that were created recently, such as Mon (mnw) and Sakizaya (szy), but I don't have an iOS device myself, and till now I've only received complaints from N'Ko.

In any case, the documentation of the necessary steps to add a language to the iOS app should be documented at https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Add_a_wiki . It looks like the documentation at the moment is incomplete.

Can add a script to build this (if we don't already have one) periodically from API source of truth.

Yes, please.

The more automatic it is, the better (see T158730), but I understand that a lot of things are manual in the wiki creation process now and won't be very soon. If at least it's properly documented in https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Add_a_wiki , it will already be better.

Moving this to Eng sync, but feel free too triage elsewhere if needed
