Mbch331 added a comment to T155419: Add monolingual language code "omq-x-mixtec" ("Mixtec").

I think the discussion here becomes more complex than it should be. How many labels do we actually expect to have here? If we just start with "mix", and then we get a lot of them, can they be later divided by someone who understands these languages well?

Another wonder : monolingual language code does not necessarily mean there would be a new line "gsw-fr" as labels for items, does it?

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.

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.

I've used Wyandot as the name of the language in English, since that's what most sources use.

Mbch331 added a comment to T284276: define standard turn-around times for language code additions for Wikidata.

I noticed that the quickest step usually is Mbc331 .

  • As creation of these codes is a basic Wikidata maintenance step, I suppose we should also plan for when Mbc331 isn't available and it has to be done by WMDE.

If I'm not around, any other volunteer coder can do this. These are quite simple changes.

  • For code review, I added a few open ones I found into "Wikidata (consider for next sprint)". Is this the correct place or should be in "Wikidata (in progress)" ?

If there is actually a patch, Wikidata-Campsite (Wikidata-Campsite-Iteration-∞) is the correct tag and peer review is the correct status.

Coding done by volunteer -> 1 week after langcom approval (should be shorter, but depends on when the volunteer (usually mee) has time). (Doesn't matter which of the three it is.)
Coding done by WMDE: Don't know if they want to spend "expensive" paid resources when it can easily be done by a volunteer
code review: usually done within 1 week after delivery of the code
After code review the deployment is with the next train (code deployment)
Lydia review nowadays not needed as long as there is langcom approval. @Amire80 / @jhsoby can comment on the langcom approval part.
Maybe @Lydia_Pintscher has something to say about the WMDE side (if my assumptions are correct and maybe I missed something)

I doubt they have much of a view on this. The initial request seems to be concerned primarily with "osa-latn", maybe we could just do that.

That's a fair assessment based on what I've seen and this seems like a fine solution to me. If you'd like, I'm willing to contact the Osage Nation to get their input.

OK, and mvf is OK, too. Is there such a task for mvf? I thought it's added already.

For a reminder of the controversies involving a code for Mongolian in its native script, see T215032 and (described as having a negative effect on one participant) T137810.
