I suppose the wiki's configuration is still needed (especially Wikisource which needs namespaces), which I asked on the request page http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Requests_for_new_languages/Wikisource_Marathi#Approval

Do we have this yet?

Mahitgar provided:
Default project timezone Asia/Mumbai
Project name विकिस्रोत
Project namespace विकिस्रोत
Project talk namespace विकिस्रोत_चर्चा

Other namespaces and logo not yet, but that could perhaps be set later on.

Asia/Mumbai isn't a valid php timezone

Thanks.
For the timezone, apparently Asia/Kolata is used for India.

Not a valid timezone either

Sorry I meant Asia/Kolkata

Additional namespaces request

दालन,दालन_चर्चा (en:Portal)

सूची,सूची_चर्चा (en:Index)

पान,पान_चर्चा (en:Page)

साहित्यिक,साहित्यिक_चर्चा (en:Author)

Thanks and Regards

Could you please report it as separate bug report? This bug is about creating mr.wikisource.org and it is done, marked RESOLVED FIXED.

No need for a separate bug, the timezone and namespaces are part of the wiki setup (those namespaces are needed for all wikisources).

Based on what I see in "My preferences", it looks like the timezone has been set for the wiki (as "Asia/Kolkata", which should be correct), but the "Project" and "Project talk" namespaces (see Comment 7) have not been created yet, nor the "additional" namespaces requested in Comment 14. What exactly are we waiting on now? Apparently importing of articles is on hold until these namespaces are created...

You're waiting on someone having the time to make and push your requests to site

4 namespaces added

Thanks for the transfer.

Now to work in MediaWiki namespace for displaying Sitenotice and other configurations we need admin powers.
Also for some bot work we need Bot flags to make initial dumping.

Please grant the same or tell us the procedure we have to complete on our side.

Thanks

Logo upload protected.

::Did not understand

I protected the logo against reupload (ie. one thing less to do). Logos should be upload protected. Otherwise someone could replace the logo with something else, probably inappropiate.

Where you protect and unprotect we are unaware just we request to support us in uploading specialy created image for Marathi language wikisource as requested by Rahul .

I don't see how the logo could be changed without a global Wikisource discussion (probably at www.wikisource.org).

This is not the place for this discussion.

I agree, so let's follow the usual process instead of inventing a new one here.

The current logo is patently wrong
as well as it is not localised

Not wrong but incomplete. As usual, it will be localised following the visual identity guidelines and the global consensus. If the local community is not able to localise the logo SVG, I'm sure help can be found. We still have dozens of missing logos on [[commons:Wikipedia/2.0]], but I've seen some activity around it lately.

Where is consensus to use a different logo?

Closing this; the wiki exists.
