Thanks for the update, @Urbanecm. Because Western Armenian Wikipedia was created, I thought that had been resolved.

I'm not a member of Wikitech, and personally do not have a strong need to be one, as I'm not doing the tech-side work. With all due respect, going forward, I intend to do only what I have done here: I will open the initial phabricator task, tagged with Wiki-Setup (Create). There are plenty of people who follow that board who know what to do next. So I feel confident things will be taken care from there.

  1. @Liuxinyu970226: Let's do this one first, please. Will you put in the ticket?
  2. The more experience I have on Incubator, the less I'm so sure I want sitelinks (other than in the Incubator: and Help: namespaces). There are some tests that are pretty well developed and pretty well maintained, and sitelinks to them would be fine. But there are also plenty of tests on Incubator where the content is really trivial, and I'm not sure sitelinks to them are so useful. Maybe better to wait until some version of @Amire80's project (T165585) is done and then link selectively to well-maintained incubation subdomains only.

StevenJ81 added a comment to T165585: Make creating a new Language project easier.

@Amire80, I'd venture that for now, since closing Incubator is not part of the proposal, we also don't need to discuss (yet) what to do with the less active Incubator projects.
In my personal view, there is clear consensus to begin the work to make this happen. Still, while the Incubator community agrees in principle that moving all active test projects into a space like the one we're proposing is a good idea, there is still enough concern about not creating a "Wild West" of new subdomains that we should be focusing on (1) putting the infrastructure in place and (2) deciding on which projects should be moved to test this infrastructure. For the moment, we're still putting new projects in Incubator.
Also, to clarify a couple of other things:

  • At the moment, I don't think we're discussing closing Beta Wikiversity (even in the longer run) and having all new Wikiversity tests start in one of these spaces. Tests nearing approval could be eligible, though. (At the moment, the only one remotely active enough is hewikiversity.)
  • I think a well-developed Wikisource looking to move to a subdomain can also be eligible. But the default for new Wikisources is going to remain Mulitilingual (Old) Wikisource, for a variety of very good reasons.

StevenJ81 added a comment to T174601: Change the language codes of Sakizaya from "ais" (retired by SIL) to "szy" everywhere, and add it to Names.php.

I know. The issue here is that many people are claiming that "Nataoran Amis" is not really a different language from Amis (ami), and that Sakizaya is a completely different language. At the same time, SIL considers Sakizaya to be a dialect of Nataoran (and therefore within the boundaries of "ais").

StevenJ81 updated subscribers of T174601: Change the language codes of Sakizaya from "ais" (retired by SIL) to "szy" everywhere, and add it to Names.php.

@Liuxinyu970226: Are you saying the code is not in the language table at all? I guess I misunderstood that. If it looks like this is not going to be resolved in the January 2019 code release—and I see no reason we can't hold off a couple of more months—then I'm ok with adding the label as "Nataoran/Sakizaya" in the meantime. (For the record, I'm not OK using just "Sakizaya" until and unless SIL goes there.)

StevenJ81 added a comment to T174601: Change the language codes of Sakizaya from "ais" (retired by SIL) to "szy" everywhere, and add it to Names.php.

I am happy to ask LangCom for advice. But to be perfectly honest, I'd like to put this one on hold until January. The whole question of whether "Nataoran Amis" exists independently of Amis in general seems to be a little controversial, and I'm told that there are going to be change requests to SIL in the upcoming round to reassign that language code to Sakizaya (or else to give Sakizaya a new code). So to be perfectly candid I'd like to see what happens in the January 2019 release from SIL first.

Nope. Don't agree. First: No consensus was sought on-wiki. Second: Once tech-admin happens, the only thing "translators" will be able to do is to translate certain messages and communications in the MediaWiki space. Most of the ones relevant to projects once they're exported are now in translatewiki.net, but we have a handful that we have to deal with locally. (A number of the fields that populate the template "Test wiki" come to mind.) If someone is otherwise trustworthy and is willing to tackle some of those, I'm happy to have a way to let him/her do so. And if anything, granting such a right will be less dangerous going forward. I have no trouble with the group mostly remaining empty most of the time; I'm more interested in keeping this option open.

I'm not sure if incubatorwiki was switched yet. But Xaosflux and his bot are going to start working on the wiki this weekend. As of the moment, we have over 3,000 high-priority and over 10,000 medium-priority errors on incubatorwiki, and because of the nature of the wiki and its test communities, it has not been so easy to get all the errors corrected. So I'm inclined to ask, if this is still possible, for incubatorwiki to be in the absolute final set of wikis to be converted, so we have time to address this. Thank you.

@Samwilson, @ChristianKl and @MF-Warburg : If you are a "pure Wikidata"-type person, this comment probably made sense. The comment made no sense whatsoever in the broader context of the history of project creation and approvals across the WMF project universe. There are reasons that we don't just create those sites, even if that should happen to be inconvenient for Wikidata.

Well, that's why I suggested creating this "wikimorgue" (or whatever) name. This gives the phantom wikis names so that they can be accessed. But that name (whatever it ends up being) shouldn't be public, so that the "deleted" wikis can't (easily) be accessed publicly.

Once again, let me emphasize what LangCom decided and the Board approved: We want the five redirects shown in the Description of this task to happen, so that the deleted projects no longer appear to the public. How that happens is pretty much unimportant.

Fine. What LangCom wants, and what the Board has approved, is for these projects to functionally disappear (to the public) in favor of their targets. It doesn't matter at all to us how you think you'd like to do it. We're not wedded to this task; we just want to get to that end.

This is crazy. The whole reason this version of the task asks to set up with redirects is that we were told that it would be technically too problematic to delete the databases. Now they complain about this. The Board has approved the effective deletion of these projects. Figure out how to do it.

Please do not change the task back to "Open". Until Language Committee approves the project, you can't have an open task to create it.

StevenJ81 added a comment to T174601: Change the language codes of Sakizaya from "ais" (retired by SIL) to "szy" everywhere, and add it to Names.php.

Government of Taiwan goes in one direction, SIL goes in a different direction. Right now policy is that SIL and official language codes are the standard. LangCom needs to weigh in if it wants this handled differently.

Not your place to change the priority. System developers and LangCom members decide that.

I would note that the deletion of the Wiktionary, Wikiquote and Wikibooks databases could be accomplished with the redirects (for the moment) going to the current location of the Wikipedia (i.e., als Wikipedia) without worrying (for the moment) about moving Alemannisch Wikipedia from als > gsw.

Look, don't worry about it. I appreciate @MarcoAurelio's willingness to make suggestions. But I do have another alternative account that I already created. So I guess we can just leave the account alone to moulder. So at this point, my only question is whether or not Marco should globally lock it, just so nobody manages to hijack it. But I leave that up to him.

Did this deploy? Is this no longer stalled? Sufficient interface translations have been made, and we need to move this project on to creation. Thanks.

According to this page, kbp is past 13% on MediaWiki core messages. Isn't that sufficient to get the ball rolling here?

I just want to make sure, because this doesn't seem clear anywhere else: fallback language for this wiki will be French, right? Since it looks like this wiki will launch with de minimis message translation, that's important.

I'm assuming this was not deployed yet (since its status is "blocked" and I see no changes on Incubator yet). Is that right?

I didn't really intend what I wrote as a resolution; I intended it as a stopgap until such time as this issue is completely resolved. I can make that page say anything it needs to say to point people to the right place.
