jhsoby added a comment to T218155: Create Wikisource Hindi.

Later changing the internal field names (to Hindi, as they are in the initial configuration) may be a pain, however. If it is ever intended.

Thanks @Ankry for your comments. Presently there are 28,307 Page: and 40+ associate Index files. So are you advice to do this again start from scratch ?
I can do this all configuration if I have interface admin access.

Adding a value using the language code works, but the language code is not shown, just a code. This probably requires a change outside of Wikibase software.

@Mbch331 As far as I can tell from the Wikipedia article Taíno never had a written language before it went extinct, so I'm not sure what would be put into these monolingual properties? And the code "car" is apparently for the modern-day Carib language, which doesn't go by Kalinago?

jhsoby updated subscribers of T138332: interwiki links to/from Multilingual Wikisource.

It is a blocking issue in so far that an item can only link to one page on a given wiki. If several languages are covered on one wiki then we also usually have the case that we have two pages for one concept on that wiki that would both need to be linked in the same item.

Sorry, I thought I had closed this. It turned out to be a browser issue with Chrome – IIRC, the thing I needed to do to fix this (on my machine) was to enable "GPU rasterization" on chrome://flags, and everything went back to normal. So it wasn't actually a Wikimedia-specific problem at all.

Whenever we talk about spaces what we actually mean is wordbreaks, however many languages (e.g. Chinese) don't have obvious word breaks (you could guess if you had a really good dictionary..), so any change here would definitely make things worse on those wikis.

Thanks @Jonas et al. Community consensus is already there, see https://wikisource.org/wiki/Wikisource:Scriptorium#Enable_arbitrary_Wikidata_access_for_oldwikisource .

jhsoby added a comment to T203310: Remove mnw from monolingual text list.

This may be the case for more languages in that list. Do you have time to look into that and amend this task to reflect that if necessary?

List of languages with valid language codes and at least some content in oldwikisource:

jhsoby closed T175622: Enable Special:PageLanguage on mul.wikisource as Resolved.

Since the translate extension was enabled (T201814), which includes this feature by default, I believe this can be closed. I don't think setting the default page language to mul is possible without changing the wiki language itself, and that would probably have really bad side-effects, so it's probably better to keep it at English. But please feel free to reopen (and possibly change the task description/title) if I'm wrong.

jhsoby added a comment to T190129: Consolidate language metadata into a 'language-data' library and use in MediaWiki.

One thing that needs to be figured out is how to add languages to language-data where we don't know the native name of the language. Right now, the design of language-data makes that a requirement to be added, but there are many languages that could (and should) be supported in e.g. Wikidata and mul.Wikisource where we don't have that, making it impossible to add them properly.

Looked some more into it, and it seems that the list of languages you can choose corresponds directly to the list of languages in Names.php.

Well, changing page language is part of the Translate extension, so I think someone from Language-Team could tell us that. I'm not sure if changing it in language-data is enough – I added a few languages there six months ago, but those are still not available to choose as page languages, so there must be something more to do. Maybe @Nikerabbit or @Amire80 could shed some light on the matter?

Since there is no development on this, I have committed a change 454700 to revert the autonym change, as outlined as option 3 by @tstarling in T174160#3798644.

Note that I'm not sure if there are any more changes needed to make this happen. I just copied the settings that were made in the patch for T159316. Maybe @Ladsgroup can shed some light on that.

(Sorry about my confusion up there, when marking this as a duplicate I got an error message which led me to think action wasn't performed, while it turned out it actually was.)
