Mbch331 added a comment to T308062: Carolinian language (ISO code: cal) and Tanapag (ISO code: tpv) label support on Wikidata.

@Manuel: The term termbox languages means Labels/Aliases/Descriptions. When added, they are also available for Monolingual properties. They won't become available for Lexemes on the other hand.

As Toki Pona is well-attested and seems to have quite some traction, I (as a LangCom member) support adding it for both lexemes and monolingual.

What is the next step in getting support for Toki Pona added? The previously mentioned pull request already got merged.

In Wikibase, yes, but @Mbch331’s changes also add the language to wmgExtraLanguageNames, where the autonym is included. (Eventually we’ll hopefully get rid of that – see T273627 – but depending on where the autonym is used, maybe we’ll add the autonyms to the Wikibase config. I’m not sure.)

Mbch331 added a comment to T290857: Add monolingual language codes for Oïl languages family : Gallo language, Lorrain language.

There is a very big problem to need a languages codes. There is so many languages without it AND it’s always little language used by minorities. It’s terribly difficult to help, describe and write in these language here, when it shouldn't.

But is there a real use case for monolingual properties in those languages? If there's only a one time use, then you should use mis (miscellaneous), because changing the code so minority languages can be used will make this a significant change.
If there are valid use cases then please provide them, so WMDE can make a better judgment if it's worth changing the code to make this possible.

@Eugene233 When requesting new languages always specify what you want to use them for: Monolingual properties or Lexemes or Labels/Description/Aliases as the developer needs to know where to add them in the code.
If you want to use the language outside Wikidata, you need to contact LangCom (not via Phabricator) what you need to do to get the language added for use on all Wikimedia projects.

No. It's only available for monolingual properties. Labels/aliases/descriptions aren't properties and thus not supported. If it's needed, a new ticket is needed for that.

Mbch331 added a comment to T285076: double check sco language names, update LocalNamesSco.

If I understand correctly, T162406 is about CLDR. Ideally, all these changes should eventually be in upstream CLDR and not in local MediaWiki code.

It's about LocalNamesSco.php only.

Ideally these changes should be added to Cldr

Not used for Lexemes, but added as a monolingual language code. Will remove it there.

Looks like the language dropdown is using ULS and not the monolingual language dropdowns from Wikidata. So this is more for the SDC team and not for the Language codes team.

Well, test is after deployment (i.e. ensure it actually works). Ideally this is done by the person who requested the new code.

Which steps can run parallel ?

I think there are two possibilities:

  • steps that can't technically done in parallel
  • steps that can technically be done in parallel

For the later, there may be reasons to do them before or after some step. Obviously, it doesn't mean they have to be done in parallel.

Current estimate for the entire process seems to be 5 weeks (if you are available). This seems a lot for a somewhat basic task even for the volunteer part of our organization.
